Culminating African American History Month festivities, the City of Miami presented the Stirrup Family with an official proclamation honoring the legacy of our patriarch E.W.F. Stirrup and his commitment to providing affordable housing for the community.
Festivities, held at Plymouth Congregational Church in Coconut Grove, were attended by Stirrup’s grandson E.W.F. Stirrup III and wife Barbara, granddaughter Edeane (Woodye) Stirrup, and great-granddaughters Monique (Nikki) Jefferson (SFL board), LaTasha Stirrup and Stirrup Family Community Liaison LaToya Stirrup. Two other prominent Coconut Grove families–the H. E. Sigismund Reeves and the Daniel William Anderson Family–were recognized as well.
Following worship service, a jazz brunch was held with the Brenda Alford Trio providing entertainment. Contributions were made to benefit the United Negro College Fund. The Stirrup Family is humbled and truly honored to receive our city’s recognition. The Stirrup Family Legacy lives, and will continue to live on.
