The African-American community in Tallahassee from the late 1800s to the 1960s was characterized by a persevering spirit, a strong work ethic, and a love for home, family, and community. During that long period of racial inequity, this same community set about developing its own institutions and activities, from Florida A&M University to the annualEmancipation Proclamation festival, and what emerged was a rich cultural life that produced and attracted some of the best and brightest minds.
