About John Gilmore Riley Center/Museum
Born in 1857, John Gilmore Riley defied all odds and laws to learn how to read and write, paving the way for future African American men and women to do the same. The John Gilmore Riley Center/Museum was established in 1996 with the aim of educating the public on the contributions that African Americans have made to Florida's history. With a range of exhibitions, archives, after-school programs, and summer camps, the John Gilmore Riley Center/Museum has a wealth of resources for curious minds, both young and old.
