Such are the stirring images that encompass the exhibition Black Florida History: The South Florida Scene, 1880-1960, Part One, curated by FIU professor of psychology Marvin Dunn, who culled the photos from his collection, which numbers close to 2000. The exhibition runs through January 29 in the Collins Campus Center, rm 4207-1, at MDCC Gallery North, 11380 NW 27th Ave. Admission is free. Call 305-237-1532. (NK)
