Many of the images in this collection once appeared in the “Negro” news section of the St. Petersburg Times. At some point in time, they were acquired by the Neighborhood News Bureau, a partnership of USFSP and other entities that documents events in and shares news of Midtown, an area of southern St. Petersburg with a substantial African American population. In January 2014, Dr. Deni Elliott, Chair of Journalism and Media Studies at USFSP and the Eleanor Poynter Jamison Chair of Media Ethics and Press Policy, transferred this collection from the Neighborhood News Bureau offices to the Poynter Library to ensure the long-term preservation of the photographs.
