Time: 6:00 pm til 8:00 pm
Location: Matheson History Museum, 513 E University Ave, Gainesville, Florida 32601
Description: Join the Matheson History Museum as they welcome author Albert E. White to speak about his book, "Lincoln High School: Its History and Legacy." Opened in 1923, Lincoln High School (LHS) replaced Union Academy, the premier school for African American students in Alachua County. Lincoln High School was accredited in 1926, only the second African-American high school in the state to do so. For over 40 years LHS was an integral part of the African-American community and protests were staged in 1969 when the school board decided to close it rather than integrate it. A book signing with co-author Dr. Kevin McCarthy will follow Mr. White's presentation.
Albert E. White is a Gainesville native, graduate of Lincoln High School, and the current president of the alumni association. He received his B.S. Degree in Biology from North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, NC, and his Master's Degree in Animal Physiology from the University of Florida.
