2016 Florida Archives Month

For 2016, Society of Florida Archivists is going to be sharing posts from all over the state of Florida with two themes: I Found It in the Archives and Spotlights. Found its will share information about archival collections discoverable throughout the state and Spotlights will shine some light on different repositories and projects in Florida working with archival materials. 

Have a collection you'd like to share or a project you want to tell the world about for Archives Month and you're in the great state of Florida? Please send your submissions with captioned photographs to Susan Swiatosz at sswiatosz@boyntonlibrary.org before Sept. 23, 2016.

    A page from a letter dated March 20, 1960 written from Patricia and Priscilla Stephens to their parents during the sisters’ time in the Leon County Jail. They ultimately served forty-nine days in jail for participating in a sit-in protest of segregated lunch-counters in Tallahassee. In this letter, the Stephens sisters describe their motivations for participating in non-violent resistance. “We cannot be contented with the conditions here in the south any longer. Our souls are being taken from us by discrimination,” they penned to their parents from inside the jail. Courtesy State Archives of Florida.
