Obtain a Hawkins T-shirt and DVD with a Charitable Donations to our Historical Society

Our primary goal is to insure that the history of Virgil Hawkins’ life and fight for Civil Rights is both widely known and not forgotten. We have designed a Virgil Hawkins Tshirt that tells his story, so you can provide this education to others by wearing a shirt honoring his history.  The hour-long DVD of the PBS Documentary: “A Lawyer Made in Heaven, provides the details of this history through interviews of historical figures who share in his efforts, as well as family members who knew the uncle they love. Either the T-shirt or DVD is available for a tax-deductible donation of $25 or both are available for a donation of $35. Orders can be made through the Paypal link to this site or by mail to Virgil Hawkins Historical Society, P O Box 3455, Plant City FL 33563. We also welcome volunteers interested in assisting us with our continuing efforts to compile Hawkins and Florida’s Civil Rights history and in organizing group presentations and historical displays.
