The "Glory in the Grove" photographs depict the life of the students at the George Washington Carver schools form 1953 to 1965 during the time of segregation. When Bob Simms joined the Carver faculty as chairman of the physical education department in 1953, he started taking photographs of the students, athletics, and school and civic activities in an effort to document the life at a segregated school. Later, after school desegregation, these pictures served as a visual documentation of the rich traditions, successes and glories of this segregated school, the students and the community.

On land donated by Coral Gables developer George Merrick in 1924, the Dade County Training School served black students from throughout the Miami area at the elementary and juniro high school levels. A student of george Washington Carver's and a graduate of the Tuskegee Institute, Mrs. Frances Tucker became principal of the school in 1929.  In 1934, one high school class was added to the school each year, When Dr. Carver died in 1942, the school was renamed in his honor.  Today the George Washington Carver Middle School is a magnet school in international education.

Series 4: Miami Inner City Minority Experience / Defense Race Relations InstituteAdd to your cart.

In the late 1960s the Department of Defense conducted a study to determine the causes of racial unrest in the Armed Forces. As a direct result of that study, the Defense Race Relations Institute (DRRI) was established on June 24, 1971 by Deputy Secretary of Defense David Packard. This institute was located at the Patrick Air Force Base in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The DRRI's primary objective was to reduce racial tension and prevent violence in the armed forces.  The students in the Institute represented a broad cross section of American ethnic backgrounds and every branch of the service.

The Institute provided a comprehensive 6 week program that included a 50-hour experiential workshop. This workshop was developed by Bob Simms and his company, Robert H. Simms & Associates. The experiential workshop became known as the Miami Inner-City Minority Experience (MICME) and was conducted from 1972 to 1976. MICME was based on the DRRI's curriculum and theories learned, and an authentic, hands-on experience that began on a Friday afternoon and concluded two days later.
