Museum Manager Thomas Lockyear will reprise his Black History of Everglades City talk on the day after Juneteenth — with the addition of new discoveries and expanded information. Mr. Lockyear will share the recently revealed story of one of the town’s earliest residents, a Civil War Veteran who served in the 34th Colored Infantry, and discuss the significant though often overlooked contributions made to the region’s history by African American residents of the greater Everglades City area.
