Otis R. Anthony African Americans in Florida Oral History Project

Otis R. Anthony African Americans in Florida Oral History Project

 

Most of these oral histories were conducted between 1977 and 1978 as part of the Black History of Tampa Project, sponsored by the Tampa Urban League and the Hillsborough County Museum, under the direction of community activist Otis R. Anthony.

In 1994, Anthony donated the collection to the USF Department of Anthropology, to support its Central Avenue Legacies Project. The Department of Anthropology conducted additional interviews, focusing primarily on Central Avenue and the Afro-Cuban community.

This is an open collection with interviews from other sources, to which more content will be added over time.
