Apalachicola Black Archive Project

The Apalachicola Black Archive Project will digitize submissions of heritage materials from individuals and organizations in the unique and historic Florida panhandle city of Apalachicola. The Project will host a 2-day collection event and public program on May 18-19, 2019 (May 20 is when many black Floridians celebrate Emancipation Day). Longstanding resident families, historic churches, members of fraternal organizations and their descendants will form the primary targets for contributing photographs, papers, programs, and other documents related to the history of the African American community of Apalachicola. The Project is led by Marcia Smith, President of Firelight Media, in collaboration with Jill Rourke, Director of the Apalachicola Margaret Key Library, in collaboration with local organizations including the Hillside Coalition of Laborers of Apalachicola and the African American Art, History and Culture Association and others.
