Tallahassee, FL - The Tallahassee Urban League launched an exhibit today to commemorate the 100Th birthday of Reverend Dr. Charles Kenzie Steele at the Taylor House Museum. Reverend Steel was instrumental in the Civil Rights movement in Florida. He is said to have shared the same vision as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. of social equality through nonviolent means. "He always tried to make a different as it relates to those people that are suffering. Whether it was housing, whether it was Civil Rights, whatever the problem would be Reverend Steele would stand up for the small men," said Curtis Taylor, Tallahassee Urban League President.

If you're interested in seeing the historic exhibit you can visit the Taylor House Museum in Frenchtown.
