Alex Hughes, Community Leader


An early African American Boca Raton pioneer, Hughes bought one of the first lots in the newly developed black community of Pearl City and secured the land for its first two churches. During the days of segregation, he petitioned the county to supply a teacher and helped establish the first African American school in Boca Raton.
