Description

Disney's Black Heritage Celebration, February 1998, by Everett Spruill. The color painting includes the event's logo, signed by the artist and numbered 870/1000. Two color photographs appear below the painting featuring teachers and students from Hillcrest Elementary School visiting with Rosa Louise McCauley Parks (1913-2005), and costumed characters, Mickey and Minnie Mouse. The Walt Disney Company recognized Black History Month by hosting celebrities, shows and artists across its three Orlando theme parks and at Downtown Disney, its entertainment and shopping complex.

Hillcrest Elementary School is one of Orlando’s oldest schools, opening in 1923. Since the 1980s, it has had a vibrant foreign language component and today it continues that tradition through the Orange County Public Schools Foreign Language Academy.
