For the last several years, Crown Center Executive Suites has honored Black History Month by using its communication channels to highlight historical figures of African American heritage that have made significant contributions to American culture.
JAM has worked on this project for several years, so when Jackie read ‘Black Edison’: The 20th century’s prolific, oft-forgotten inventor“ published by The Hustle back in November 2020, she was inspired to do more research this year.
As we collaborated with the Crown Center team, it was decided that we should create a more robust series to honor the eight individuals that we wanted to learn more about.
Crown Center Executive Suites is honored to launch the Who They Are series on social media. We invite you to learn more about Carter Woodeson, Peggy Quince, Garrett Morgan, and Alfred Hair. You’ll also learn interesting facts about Mary McLeod Bethune, Eula Johnson, and Dr. Von D. Mizell. To be fair, there are actually 34 people recognized in this series – and many have a Florida connection.
Be sure to follow Crown Center Executive Suites on Facebook and Instagram page for the Who Are They series. We hope you enjoy it!
