Description

Episode 31, Part 2 of RICHES Podcast Documentaries: Hamilton Holt. 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 31 examines the integration of Central Florida schools nearly 10 years after the U.S. Supreme Court declared segregation illegal. This podcast includes interviews with former students and teachers of Jones High School, the first public school for African Americans in Orlando, Florida. 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

This podcast examines the integration of Central Florida schools nearly ten years after the Supreme Court declared segregation illegal. We will hear from former students and teachers of Jones High School that were actual witnesses of the process on the effects of integration.
