Overview

From 1887 until 1970, African American (Black) Students in Lee
County were educated separately. Lee County Florida during this era was typical of the public school systems throughout the South. Black students attended school in a variety of facilities that included but were not limited to churches, houses, private homes and eventually their own buildings.
Therefore, principals and teachers of color played a significant role in the lives of the black children living in Lee County and the surrounding areas.

This compilation serves as a tribute to Black Educators who travailed during this segregated period of history. Because of the hard work,
dedication, determination and perseverance shown by these historical trailblazers, this book affords an opportunity to show appreciation and admiration for their valuable and lasting contributions in educating the children of Lee County and other communities.

The Lee County Black History Society, Inc. salutes the many Black
Educators who taught our students, while taking a stance to build dignity,
pride and instill family values. This pictorial reflection highlights those who toiled within the segregated school system, encountered many challenges,
yet were successful.

We love you and salute you EDUCATORS!!
