"Paradise Park" was the colored-only counterpart to Silver Springs Park in Ocala. It was a popular place where black families from all over the country could relax and vacation during a time of oppressive racial violence. Florida was one of the most dangerous places to be black during the Jim Crow era, with more lynching per capita than any other state. This made Paradise Park an oasis for black families, where they could have fun, be safe, and make happy memories together.

NEXT WEEK remember a piece of Florida history in this special program at the West Osceola Library, sponsored by the Florida Humanities Council. In honor of Black History Month, we travel back in time with Lu Vickers, author of several Florida history books, to 1949 when Silver Springs owners opened Paradise Park! #blackhistorymonth #paradisepark #libraryprogram #osceolalibrary #westosceolalibrary #history #silversprings #floridahistory #africanamericanhistory #africanamericanhistorymonth

On February 20, 1960, students from Florida A&M University (FAMU) and Florida State University (FSU) held a second larger sit-in at the Woolworth’s lunch counter in downtown Tallahassee. When they refused to leave, 11 were arrested and charged with “disturbing the peace by engaging in riotous conduct and assembly to the disturbance of the public tranquility.” Several of the students chose “jail over bail” and remained in police custody while their story circulated around the country and garnered additional support for the movement.⠀

In the months and years that followed, additional demonstrations and picketing took place at downtown stores and theaters in Tallahassee and elsewhere in Florida. The participants in these events were the “Foot Soldiers for Change” who worked tirelessly to defeat segregation in the United States. #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackHistory #FloridaHistory CivilRights
