St. Petersburg’s African-American community enjoys a rich history that is evidenced within these pages of treasured images and detailed captions. Captured are the people, places, and events that have shaped this community from its earliest days to the present. Highlighted are the city’s first black settlers John Donaldson and Anna Germain, former slaves, employees of Louis Bell Jr. , and true pioneers. Acknowledged is the impact that the blacks who migrated here in the late 1800s had on the city’s development. Shared are fond memories of black neighborhoods like Methodist and Pepper Towns that no longer exist, but can never be forgotten. Remembered is the community’s fight for racial equality-using both peaceful and militant means.
