Jan 2022 - MLK Jr Day

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day - 17 Jan 2022

We honor the contributions he made toward racial justice and equality.

From the VisitTallahassee office:

"The Civil Rights Movement is a core part of Tallahassee's history. During this time, students from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) partnered with local leaders, high school students, and Florida State University (FSU) students to protest against unequal treatment under the law. Their history is our history, and their actions were crucial in the larger Civil Rights Movement, garnering the attention of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the nation."
