Former project coordinator Eric Chrisp explains the History Project during a 1997 community fair at the Sanderlin Center in St. Petersburg.

About this project

No one is better qualified to chronicle the history of this community than the people who have lived here.

Residents of Bartlett Park, Harbordale, Thirteenth Street Heights, Campbell Park, Cromwell Heights and others are working with students and faculty at the University of South Florida to document and pass on the history of this community.

Outlined here are the objectives of the Olive B. McLin Community History Project and information about getting involved.

The CD-ROM project, Bus To Destiny, is a multimedia look back at St. Petersburg's black community.

Join in this annual community gathering that celebrates local African American history with St. Petersburg's neighbors and historians.

Here are the people who have contributed many tireless hours to make this project a reality.

This program is made possible through a grant from Florida Humanities Council, 1514 1/2 E. Eighth Ave., Tampa, FL 33605-3708
