Black in Time: Bob Simms played a big role in developing black Miami’s leaders and solving community issues

A champion can be someone who competes and wins a contest or competition. Champions usually defend, support or promote human rights. Rarely does one person have the ability to do it all. Robert “Bob” Simms, who was born in 1927 and died in 2014, had such a gift. As a result, his legacy is preserved in the memories of family, friends and many whose lives he touched as a teacher, photographer, executive director and social engineer/problem solver/influencer.
