Florida Memory

In the spring of 1960, eight students participated in a jail-in at the Leon County Jail in Tallahassee. 

The jail-in garnered intense media coverage and its success resonated with the aims of the larger national civil rights movement.

This correspondence from the Patricia Stephens Due Papers documents those historic 49 days in jail.
