TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Over the past few days, Florida A&M University has been hosting its 9th annual "Spring Literacy Forum."
This year's theme for the annual event is "Song of the Afro-South: Intersections and Connections."
The theme shows that the ideas of identity, religion, and even history within southern communities and how they're connected to the students and everyone around them.
During the event, speakers from all walks of life, including FAMU alums, have shared their stories and how they've gone from student to success.
The hope is inspire others to go after their dreams.
Even though this spring literacy forum ends tonight, it will be back next year on the last Thursday and Friday of February.
