Abstract

Dr. Basha P. Jordan and Dr. Antoinette Jackson discuss the Jordan Family legacy and their connection to Lincoln Cemetery. Dr. Basha P. Jordan is a Pastor and founder of Hope Alive Outreach. Dr. Jordan's grandfather, Elder Jordan Sr., contributed significantly towards advancing the Black community in St. Petersburg, Florida, through land donation. Following his grandfather's footsteps, Dr. Jordan continues to work towards community development using his ministry, participation in the Lincoln Cemetery Board of Commissioners, the redevelopment of The Legacy at Jordan Park, and the production of a recovery radio. The conversation between Dr. Jackson and Dr. Jordan provides an insightful overview of St. Petersburg's Black history, particularly emphasizing the Jordan Family and the various churches in the area.
