Last night I taught the kids that it’s smart to slow down and appreciate sunsets over the river. Ice cream too, but mostly sunsets.

SOFE » The Many Faces of Miami →

Marvin Dunn is a great scholar whose book, Black Miami in the Twentieth Century,” should be in the library of every Miami resident.

Students will enjoy the great narrative about how the community has overcome a lot of obstacles. It continues to do so today however, the history is not told in classrooms.

I love the history of Miami. Julia Tuttle, George Merrick, Henry Flagler, Ponce de Leon, the Bay of Pigs and the Tequesta Indians are all obviously intertwined in every part of the city we enjoy today. Yet there remains a need for more books on the history of the Bahamians, Seminole blacks and those who laid the foundation of what we see today.

Miami would never be the city it is today without the people who built it. Mr. Dunn gives details about the many hardworking men and women who built this city, became wealthy through their own business dealings and also created schools, churches and communities of safety and love.

Learning about this broader history gives Miami a deeper, less glossy story. It will make you love Miami, and its Black community, even more.
