Perspectives: Wakulla Springs’ African-American History

Tomand four guests in radio studio

For generations, African-American families had lived in the area around Wakulla Springs, long before Ed Ball built the lodge and other resort amenities at which many of these families would find employment.  Those connections continue to this day and on January 26, Wakulla Springs will celebrate that legacy with a day-long event.  To talk about it are: Herb Donaldson with the area’s Palaver Tree Theatre; Wakulla Springs Park Manager Amy Conyers; Friends of Wakulla Springs President Barbara Wilson; and Wakulla Springs Historian Madeline Carr.
