TCC unveiled its 18th annual Cherry Hall Alexander African-American History Calendar on Jan. 31. This year’s theme, “African-Americans in Times of War,” honors local African-Americans who have served in the U.S. military. In addition to military service, the honorees also share a distinguished record of civilian public service.
Wilson Barnes, a retired U.S. Army colonel who holds the Bronze Star medal, Defense Superior Service medal and National Defense Service medal, was the guest speaker at the ceremony. He was the Florida Supreme Court marshal from 1990-2005.
