In Response To: Constructions of race ()
I know that you will have your audiences enthralled by your knowledge of people of color in the Americas.
As you may have gathered, I am a shameless promoter of Florida and its history. (Wink) Iím also a proud member of the Florida Historical Society. Therefore Iím pleased to share the URLís below with you.
Palmm is my favorite historical resource for all things Florida. Its introduction explains its mission:
ďPublication of Archival, Library & Museum Materials (PALMM) is a cooperative initiative of the public universities of Florida to provide digital access to important source materials for research and scholarship. PALMM projects may involve a single university or may be collaborative efforts between a university and partners within or outside of the state university system. PALMM projects create high-quality virtual collections relevant to the students, research community and general citizenry of Florida.Ē
Its webpage address is:
You can use the Search engine on this page or go straight to some of the cross text collections for specific searches on subjects related to the Floridas. THE FLORIDA HERITAGE COLLECTION is my favorite. The address is:
Most of the materials were published by the Florida Historical Society. It includes 990 titles. The authors include legendary historians like Jack Holmes, Afrigeneasí friend Dr. Jane Landers, Dr. Canter Brown, Dr. Larry Rivers and Leitch Wright, Jr.
Some titles that may be of interest:
The Voluntary Exile of Free Negroes of Pensacola by Ruth B. Barr and Modeste Hargis

Since you are familiar with the strong historical links between the Caribbean and the Floridas, youíll appreciate The Eric Eustace Williams Collection:
If you have any questions about the PALMM projectís rich archives, please let me know.
I do hope that you will become enveloped in the rich history of Florida and the people of color who were an integral force in shaping the American history.
