The USF Institute on Black Life has created a new web portal to better document the historic and current African American communities across Tampa Bay.
The African American Neighborhood Project portal provides resources like oral histories, heritage sites, archival photographs and research addressing anti-Black racism. As first centralized database centered around Tampa Bay Black communities, the portal was announced at the IBL annual conference.
“We are excited to launch this portal with the type of information that can help students with projects, while linking together those engaged in research and community work in these neighborhoods,” said Fenda Akiwumi, IBL director.
