Africa in Florida: Five Hundred Years of African Presence in the Sunshine State
Edited by Amanda B. Carlson and Robin Poynor
We’re excited to showcase this beautiful new book! Full of vibrant artwork, poems, photographs, maps, and descriptions of music and dance, Africa in Florida looks at the countless ways immigrants from Africa have impacted Florida’s history and culture. Starting with the first documented African presence in the state 500 years ago, this book shows how African explorers, farmers, slaves, slave owners, writers, and artists contributed to the development of Florida and the United States as a whole. Take a look!
