HERITAGE EDUCATION

YOUTH HERITAGE  EDUCATION PROGRAMS.

Education remains at the center of the John G. Riley Center and Museum’s mission and core values due to Mr. Riley’s longstanding role as an educator in the Tallahassee community. The Riley Kids Club was created as part of our ongoing focus on primary educational efforts in Leon County. 

 

The Riley Kids Club consists of an after-school program held at Riley Elementary School, a summer camp in partnership with Lincoln Neighborhood Center, and the annual Blended Lives program for all 4th graders in Leon County. 

 

All features of the Riley Kids Club have an emphasis on heritage education and cultural engagement while strengthening the critical thinking and reading skills of students in the Tallahassee community.

ARCHIVE.

Tallahassee Community College has partnered with the John Gilmore Riley Center/Museum for African American History & Culture, Inc. to house a vast number of collections that will allow you to be exposed to the history of African Americans in Florida, as well as Florida history, from the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement. Scholars of all disciplines will find the archives to be a unique and helpful resource. The TCC Riley Museum Archive gives educators the opportunity to bring a unique resource to their college classrooms.

 

Collections and Documents are available at the Riley Archive, located on the 2nd Floor of the Tallahassee Community College Library. Materials are non-circulating; users do their research in the archive facility. Materials may be photocopied. For more information, click here to go to TCC/Riley Archive.
