The Weekly Challenger
ST. PETERSBURG — The Woodson African American Museum of Florida hosted a special viewing on Feb. 7 of WTSP-10 Tampa Bay’s Black History Month mini-documentary that explores the rich Black history in the Bay area.
The documentary first explained the origins of Black History Month. In 1915 historian Carter G. Woodson and minister Jesse Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, a group dedicated to preserving and promoting Black excellence.
Museum space is available for groups to schedule special events and meetings. Opportunities for collaboration on joint projects and exhibits are welcome.

The Legacy Garden at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum is a sprawling vista complete with magnolias, a flowing fountain, a rose garden and brick pathways. It is the result of a collaborative venture between the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership St. Pete Class of 2008, the city’s Midtown Economic Development Initiative and the museum.
In addition to being a revenue generator for the museum, resources from the garden’s rental will help with the expansion of exhibits and displays.
