In addition, the children, as well as my husband and I, were able to hear personal stories and the stories of others in the town of Leesburg, Florida. This is what I call, real life lessons. Certain things you can’t get in the classroom, you must venture out into the real world, to touch, see, and hear. Some things are taught, while other things are caught.

Consequently, these ladies took great care and time to give us an education about the Leesburg African American Museum. This trip will always be remembered.

Next, within these BIG black books were articles about the people of Leesburg. There were so many books and articles to read. Furthermore, to know that these ladies, love their town and heritage enough to collect and chronicle such history, is astounding! As a result, we are able to read about it today.

Most noteworthy, this is where it all began with a phone call with Ms. Joyce. Additionally, Ms. Joyce made sure we were able to make the most of our visit today, hence she welcomed us with open arms and gave us even more information about the Leesburg African American Museum and the community, it represents.

There were articles written about those who broke color barriers, such as, Virgil D. Hawkins, Esq. who became an attorney, during the times of blatant segregation. Most of all, there were many articles about everyday people, who raised families, worked, and did things to make their community, a great community.

We got to hold and look at this Black Law Dictionary, you know I LOVE books! This was especially great for Daniel, who wants to be a judge when he grows up!
