Tampa activist/historian Otis R. Anthony African American Oral History Project
Once nearly abandoned in a garage, almost one hundred interviews with prominent members of Tampa’s African American community have now found a home at the University of South Florida. This week’s University Beat on WUSF TV takes you to the new “Otis R. Anthony African Americans in Florida Oral History Project” and shows you how one man’s dream is helping students and the community.
Also: USF’s Library is now home to the “Otis R. Anthony African Americans in Florida Oral History Project.” This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM talks to the community activist about the collection of almost one hundred interviews with Tampa residents dating back to the early 20th century.
