In 1991, USF received the Florida Historical Society’s permission to reproduce the Florida Negro Papers in order to make the collection available to researchers. The bulk of the materials, which cover a variety of topics, consists of interviews with African American, Native American, and Hispanic residents of Florida. The first-hand accounts provided by formerly enslaved individuals offer a glimpse into Southern daily life during the Civil War era.
