The COMET and the Legacy Hut Project Celebrates Black History Month
The COMET commemorates Black History Month by partnering with the Legacy Hut Project to honor African-American Historical Figures. Through the “Black History Interactive and Cultural Experience,” the participants will portray African-American figures while experiencing transit. Passengers may encounter Harriet Tubman at a bus stop, the transit center, or even on the bus! This is a wonderful opportunity for passengers and visitors to interact with these impactful figures by listening to their stories and engaging in conversation.
Dr. Germon Miller and other Legacy Hut Project participants will board the bus between 10am – 2pm on February 16th and 17th and February 23rd and 24th.
- Route 15: Forest Drive
- Route 101: North Main
- Route 601: Shop Road
Transit has played a major role in the fight for Civil Rights. It was the driving force used to achieve equal rights for all Americans because of African-American figures such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Wilhelmina Jakes and Carrie Patterson of Tallahassee, and South Carolina’s own, Sallie Mae Fleming. This will be a fun and engaging experience for current and new riders alike.
