Description

Episode 13 of RICHES Podcast Documentaries: The Jones High School Historical Society, Inc. RICHES Podcast Documentaries are short form narrative documentaries that explore Central Florida history and are locally produced. These podcasts can involve the participation or cooperation of local area partners.

Episode 13 explores the history of Jones High School, the first public school for African-Americans in Parramore, Orlando, Florida, in the 1880s. For decades, black students were forbidden from attending white public schools. The original building for the high school was on the corner of Garland Avenue and Church Street, but the school was renamed the Johnson Academy and moved to a newer building on the corner of Parramore Avenue and Jefferson Street. In 1921, the school was renamed in honor Principal L. C. Jones and a brick, Colonial Revival building was constructed on the corner of Parramore Avenue and Washington Street. The school was finally moved to its current location at 801 South Rio Grande Avenue in 1952.

Abstract

It was the first public school for African-Americans in the 1880’s and continues to be a beacon of quality education is deemed important not only for White America but for Black America as well. The segregation laws forbade blacks from entering certain public schools, encouraging them to seek out education through other means. This podcast examines the historical value of Jones High School and the people who continue to work to preserve its history and contributions to the African-American community of Orlando.
