Cherry Hall Alexander African-American
History Calendar

Cherry AlexanderTallahassee Community College’s African-American history activities were revitalized in February 2000, spearheaded by former Director of Library Services Cherry Hall Alexander, who served as chair of the African-American History Planning Committee. 

In the years since then, an activity has been held each week during the month of February to celebrate African-American History Month. Activities have included the following: 

  • African Fashion Show – Students, faculty and staff model and describe the origin of their attire. 
  • Talent Show – Students, faculty and staff showcase their talents through poetry, dance, song, etc.
  • African-American Trivia Contest – Students compete in answering African-American history questions.
  • Gospel Extravaganza – Community gospel groups, soloists, poetry reciters and readers, praise dancers, and mime groups perform.
  • Health Fair – Community groups and TCC healthcare programs set up tables with health-related literature and administer HIV/AIDS, diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol screenings. 
  • Youth Day – Youth selected by their schools from Leon, Jefferson, Gadsden and Wakulla counties attend Youth Day. They tour TCC’s campus and are introduced to a variety of activities, such as STEM STARS. In addition, they attend an African-American history program where they are introduced to TCC’s Student Government Association president and vice-president and enlightened by speakers, which in the past have included FAMU and Florida State University student body presidents.
  • Panel Discussions – Students are introduced to topics such as diversity issues and the importance of voting.
  • Greek Step Show – Greek sororities and fraternities share their steps with TCC students, faculty and staff.
  • African-American History Calendar – This is the most popular of the activities that were introduced by Cherry Hall Alexander in 2001.  The calendar showcases African-American achievers who have made significant contributions to Leon and surrounding counties. In 2009, the calendar was renamed in honor of its founder upon her retirement from the College. The Cherry Hall Alexander African American History Calendar is unveiled at a special program where honorees featured in the calendar are introduced to the community. As many as twenty-five thousand copies of the calendar are printed and distributed free.
