[FL] Broward County History and "Cannonball"

Greetings Florida Researchers:

I found this site when I was researching the biography of a famous Florida musician, Julian Edwin "Cannonball" Adderly. Both Julian and his brother Nat were students in my mother's English class at the Florida A & M Campus School. Their father was the music teacher and early band director (1910) of FAMU's legendary marching bankd.

Julian carried on his father's legacy when he became the high school band director at Dillard High School. Please read his biography below.

Directly below is a link to one of the many African American histories of Southern Florida.
This article is centered on the Ft. Lauderdale area and profiles African American philanthropists and educators.
