Unveiling of Florida Historical Marker at Woodlawn Cemetery
Wednesday, April 24 at 10:00 AM
1936 NW 9 Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311
Join the City of Fort Lauderdale, the Florida Department of Transportation, and our neighbors as we unveil a
Florida Historical Marker at Woodlawn Cemetery. The cemetery, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places,
dates back to the 1920s during a time when African-Americans were not allowed to be buried in traditional cemeteries.
It serves as the final resting place for many of Fort Lauderdale’s pioneering African-Americans, whose contributions played
a significant role in the development of our City.
