SWFL man transforms former segregated railroad depot into place of inclusion

SWFL man transforms former segregated railroad depot into place of inclusion

Thank you to WINK News for this beautiful story of connectivity at Collaboratory.

If you haven’t driven by the train depot in Fort Myers recently, it has transformed into a community hub for bringing people together— in a space appropriately called the ‘collaboratory’.

The building is known for being segregated until the 1970s, and as we celebrate Black History Month, we introduce you to John Tobler, one of the faces who transformed the station and continues to transform the community.  Watch here
