Named after Georgia Jones-Ayers

Born on Oct. 21, 1928, in Miami, Ayers was said to have an encyclopedic knowledge of black history, especially Miami’s black history. The area of Miami that is now known as Allapattah was called Railroad Shop Colored Addition when Ayers lived there as a child. In 1947, her family and the rest of the community were removed from their homes and businesses by the city government after the School Board bought land to construct a school and park for white children.

Ayers founded the Alternative Program with Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Tom Petersen, now a senior judge. Theirs was a 40-year friendship that began in Liberty City. She was an activist who helped minority youth.
