Crossing Division Street: An Oral History of the African-American Community in Orlando

Title:
Crossing Division Street: An Oral History of the African-American Community in Orlando

This book includes an overview of the people, institutions, and events that shaped the establishment, growth and history of the African-American community in Orlando. We examine the creation of the neighborhood's educational centers, places of worship, and businesses, and the irony of how desegregation inadvertently led to the decline of the community. Significant instances of racial unrest in Orlando that are often overlooked are detailed in this manuscript.
