FAMU Black Archives Ribbon Cutting

This weekend FAMU is also celebrating its renowned black archives.

The house that Dr. James Eaton built is getting bigger and better.

Friday there was a ribbon cutting for the archives' newest wing. Folks were invited in to peruse some of the thousands of photos and artifacts detailing the tragedies, trials and triumphs of black history.

Jacqueline Eaton, daughter of the archives founder, said, "The day we saw the original Carnegie library, which was not dilapidated but falling apart, and we literally took brooms and swept away, and he was envisioning what this could be, and I'm so proud."

Eaton passed away two years ago, but his family came from all over the country to be here for the ribbon cutting.
