Celebrating Black History Month with "Graceful Voices"
Posted Date: 2/7/2018

The development and building of Coral Gables in the early 1920s is owed in great part to the skill and labor of Bahamian immigrants to South Florida, many of these pioneer families who settled in the areas in Coral Gables known today as the MacFarlane-Homestead and Golden Gate subdivisions. Generations of pioneer families still reside there.

The life experiences of Bahamian and African American women of Coral Gables were captured in the documentary "Graceful Voices," a film about meaningful stories that offer great lessons about achieving change with grace and strong conviction. The documentary is being distributed nationally through American Public Television in at least 199 public television stations during this month of February, as part of Black History Month.
