The Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum honors Black History Month with the special exhibit More Than a Game: Champions in the midst of Desegregation through February 26. Presented by the Historical Society of Palm Beach County and the Palm Beach County Sports Commission, the exhibit honors the 1968 Maroon Devils and their basketball coach, Floyd Andrews, from Roosevelt, the all-Black high school in West Palm Beach. Coach Floyd Andrews led his team to the first state title during integrated play. The school closed in 1970, as part of the long-delayed process of desegregation.
