We believe that learning takes place best when history can be seen and touched. Reading is fine but when a subject can be touched with the fingers and felt with the heart comprehension of the subject will stick forever. This is the message that we are trying to convey to our youth as well as adults.
Youth on the Move and Road Ready Tours have put together tour packages for our youth as well as adults that are allowing them to travel through out the state of Florida visiting many African American Museums. There are over 35 African American Museums & Tours in the state Florida, some of which we have already visited, our plans are to have on-going visits to them all. Listed below are just a few:

Housed in a rustic lime rock-covered structure that was originally a one-room schoolhouse in the 1930s, the cannery is one of only three public canneries in Florida. The kitchen provides nearly every modern-day convenience for the job, including large-volume pressure cookers, steamers, vegetable slicers, choppers and even a shelling machine for separating husks from black-eyed peas.
