WFSU’s Mike Plummer talks with some of our neighbors about their experiences in Leon County’s education system during the days of segregation. They look back on their experiences as students and teachers in Leon County’s black schoolhouses and the promise Florida A&M University offered to the black community.
Mike Plummer is a content producer and editor for television at WFSU Public Media. He spent 25 years in commercial television as an art director, commercial director, promotion manager, station manager and creative services director before coming to WFSU in 2008. Mike likes to find the “unusual” or “out of the ordinary” stories in our Local Routes. He says the best part of his job is getting to know people he would otherwise probably not get a chance to meet. Mike is widowed, has two terriers named Truman and Dexter, and is constantly at war with the vines growing in his backyard.
