The Legacy Of African Americans

Ersula1by Lawrence A. Robinson

This is a historical picture book of Tampa and Hillsborough County, Fl. of how Black people, their events and their activities influenced growth and changes in the area. It chronicled the struggles, the wins and losses of 'Negro' life in Florida's 'City by the Bay.'

My family appears in the book several times. There is even an image of me as a toddler, when I was cute and lovable.
