The VIRGIL HAWKINS HISTORICAL SOCIETY INC. hosts fundraisers, educational events and celebrations commemorating the life of Virgil Hawkins. We recently celebrated 60 years of desegregation at the University of Florida.
The proceeds from every Virgil Hawkins fundraiser support our nonprofit in Leesburg, Florida.
