As part of our celebration of Black History Month we profile Thelma Gibson. Born in the 1920s, this Miami native not only witnessed life here leading up to the civil rights movement, she fought tooth and nail for civil rights. Ms. Gibson was also one of the founders of the Jewish Home for the Aged, and one of the women who started the Women’s Chamber of Commerce of Dade County, South Florida’s first women’s chamber.
