Cherry Hall Alexander African-American History Calendar

Each year, TCC is honored to highlight individuals committed and dedicated to making a difference in our community through our Cherry Hall Alexander African-American History Calendar.

The calendar is named in honor of Cherry Hall Alexander, former director of Library Services at TCC and the inaugural chair of the African-American History Planning Committee, who in 2000 spearheaded the revitalization of the College's African-American History Month activities. The calendar showcases African-American achievers who have made significant contributions to Leon and surrounding counties. The unveiling of the calendar is one of the most popular of activities that were introduced by Cherry Hall Alexander in 2001. In 2009, the calendar was renamed in honor of its founder upon her retirement from the College. 

This year’s calendar theme, “Black Resistance: Freedom, Justice, Equality,” will feature those who work to preserve and promote these tenets through community and civic engagement. Some examples of nominees may work as community activists, clergy, educators, and legal counsel, along with other community advocates who have demonstrated leadership in one of these three areas. As a nominator, please consider the following before completing the form on behalf of a potential nominee:

  • Holds residency in the Leon, Wakulla, Jefferson, or Gadsden County area;
  • Demonstrates significant contributions in one of the aforementioned sectors; and
  • Has not been previously featured in the calendar.
