ORLANDO, Fla. — Not long ago, the realities for Black people in Central Florida were much different.
In honor of Black History Month, the Heart of Florida United Way has produced its first-ever documentary film -- “Know Your Place” -- which takes a look at Central Florida’s not-so-distant past.
In the film, you’ll hear from 11 Black community leaders in Central Florida about the times they have dealt with racism, segregation or bias in their lifetime.
Hear their personal stories and how their strength continues to inspire change in our community.
Watch the exclusive broadcast premiere of “Know Your Place” at 7 p.m. Saturday on Channel 9.
And watch “Central Florida Spotlight” at 12:30 p.m. Sunday on Channel 9 to hear from those who played a part in making the film.
