The achievements of civil rights leaders are being recognized in the Civil Rights Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in the capitol.

There are now three new inductees in the Florida Civil Rights Hall of Fame. They range from the author of the Black National Anthem to another who’s hailed as the “father of St. Augustine’s civil rights movement.”

Robert B. Hayling, a Tallahassee native, is one of the new inductees into the third annual Florida Civil Rights Hall of Fame. Speaking at a ceremony held in the Capitol building Wednesday, the 94-year-old recalled a time when he was much younger when it was just the Historic Capitol building.
