Ulysses B. Kinsey

Ulysses B. Kinsey

Ulysses B. Kinsey was one of the area’s leading black educators for nearly 50 years. He was principal of Palmview Elementary School which was renamed after Kinsey when he retired from there as principal in 1989. Kinsey moved to Palm Beach County in 1926, when he was just 8, and attended Florida A&M University. He was among the four who sued the Palm Beach County School Board in 1942 seeking equal pay for African-American teachers and later an equal number of school days for black students. Kinsey died in 2005.
