The A. Quinn Jones Museum and Cultural Center (1108 NW Seventh Ave.) announces the opening of the third installment of the Black Educators: Florida's Secret Social Justice Advocates 1920-1960 exhibit. The A. Quinn Jones Museum explores the theme "Lincoln High School: A Metaphor for Excellence." Visitors will be transported back to a time where black teachers created a nurturing learning environment that established Lincoln High School as the center for community pride. Actual documents will tell the tale of a world where no black student was left behind, and recordings will allow visitors to hear the voices of these educators, like A. Quinn Jones, who championed the fight for Black education in Alachua County.
