Florida Front and Center: Objects That Define Florida
Books and exhibitions on U.S. history often neglect to peer into Florida’s past, even though the experiences of Spaniards, West Africans, Calusa Indians, and other Floridians profoundly shaped the history of the Atlantic World. Florida Front and Center flips this script and opens the curtain on people, events, and objects from Florida’s history to bring Floridians’ experiences to the front and center of our collective understanding of the past.
But don’t just take our word for it. Explore the objects below! From the toothy jaws of a prehistoric whale to a stroll through the Magic Kingdom, when it comes to understanding America’s past, this online exhibition propels Florida’s history to the front of the line!
