Grady Elementary was selected to create a Black History Art exhibit at the Florida State Fair!   This year’s focus is Tampa Black History.  Thus, our theme is the "Jackson House," a historic rooming house which provided accommodations to African-Americans during an era of racial segregation.  It is located in downtown Tampa and is on the National Register of Historic Places.   The exhibit will be available for viewing from February 9 through February 20, 2017, and will include artwork created by Grady students.
