Florida Conversations: Jackson House Update


FEB. 2021

Plans are now underway to transform Tampa’s only remaining African American boarding house, the Jackson House, into a museum and cultural center. 

History Center curators Dr. Brad Massey and Rodney Kite-Powell, along with historian Fred Hearns, share plans for this historic downtown site, and its relationship to Tampa’s Black history.

Florida Conversations is free and open to the public, and is co-sponsored by the USF Libraries Florida Studies Center and supported by WUSF Public Media, and features authors and presenters covering a variety of Florida topics, from politics to fiction, history to environmental issues.
