A LEGACY OF COURAGE, VISION, & HOPE: AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THE LEGAL COMMUNITY IN PINELLAS COUNTY EXHIBIT
“A Legacy of Courage, Vision & Hope: African Americans in the Legal Community in Pinellas County” Exhibit was created by the St. Petersburg Bar Diversity Committee in 2002 to advance awareness of the history of African Americans in the legal profession, encourage minority students to pursue careers in the legal profession and promote a sense of accomplishment and hope in our community. The Exhibit features pioneers such as Fred G. Minnis, Sr., Judge James B. Sanderlin, C. Bette Wimbish and Morris Milton, Sr. It is the first exhibit of its kind in Florida. The St. Petersburg Bar Foundation is proud to administer this historic Exhibit.
On August 28, 2003, the Exhibit opened at the Florida Holocaust Museum. The Exhibit has been on display at universities, museums and other venues throughout the State. The Exhibit is currently on display at St. Petersburg College, Clearwater Campus; with this mid-county location, the Exhibit is readily accessible and the St. Petersburg Bar Foundation encourages all members of the public to visit the Exhibit.
