Library Lecture Series

Join Leon County for the continuation of the 2018 Leon County Library Lecture series on Monday, May 14, at 7 p.m. at the Dr. B.L. Perry, Jr. Branch Library, 2817 S. Adams St. The lecture titled “The Pathway to Freedom: Florida A&M University’s Role in the Black Freedom Struggle”, will take a look at the fundamental role that FAMU played during the civil rights era.

This lecture will also examine early black political movements during the civil rights era as FAMU served as the educational anchor of the black community during the late 19th and early 20th. Presented by Dr. Darius J. Young, the event is a part of the Annual Festival of Freedom, a month long commemoration of the first reading of the Emancipation Proclamation in Tallahassee at the Knott House on Park Avenue. Dr. Young is an Associate Professor of History at Florida A&M University and his research focuses on the early civil rights movement with an emphasis on black political movements during the first half of the twentieth century.

This fun-filled event will feature free exhibits and activities to help educate children and families on bicycle safety, CPR, child seat safety, first aid, and more!

Attendees will also have the opportunity to engage with first responders and explore their emergency response vehicles.

Face painting will also be on site, and an appearance by Leon Lifesaver – a small robotic ambulance – will teach children about 9-1-1 use and stranger danger.
