Since 1945, the Florida Sentinel Bulletin has provided a record of day-to-day life in Tampa’s African American communities. Because more mainstream newspapers provided limited coverage of the lives or activities of the black community, the Florida Sentinel Bulletin provides a unique perspective of the black community’s history. The roles of black women and the black community’s transformation during the civil rights movement may be particular interest, as highlighted through coverage of the social, political, cultural, and religious activities of this period.
