Join the State Archives of Florida and the Florida Department of State this Friday, June 27, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the R.A. Gray Bldg. for “A Civil Rights Retrospective: The Movement Through Photographs,” an event in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A slideshow will feature historic photographs that document important individuals and highlight critical events during the Civil Rights Movement in Florida. Special guest Priscilla Stephens Kruize will reflect on her years as a civil rights activist. Mrs. Kruize, along with her sister Patricia Stephens Due, founded the first Tallahassee chapter of CORE (Congress of Racial Equality). She organized and participated in a number of the most important local demonstrations in the early 1960s and is remembered as a key figure in Tallahassee’s Civil Rights Movement. #FLCivilRights
