Explore the sites in Tallahassee that civil rights activist and arts advocate Clifton Van Brunt Lewis helped support in mid-century Florida and beyond. Clifton and her husband worked in interracial committees, offered their home as meeting space, and supplied exhibition space and financial backing to citizens of Tallahassee, both black and white. Clifton worked tirelessly to create equal spaces for all and made many appeals to city and county officials to improve conditions across the state.
