Early Motoring In Florida: Making Car Culture And Race In The New South, Fon L. Gordon 2022 University of Central Florida

Early Motoring In Florida: Making Car Culture And Race In The New South, Fon L. Gordon

Florida Historical Quarterly

At the turn of the twentieth century the emergence of the American romance and religion of the motorcar arose within an historic context that included the World's Fairs between 1876 and 1916. The World's Fairs reified the twin ethos of technology and racial imperatives of exclusivity in the form of Jim Crow segregation and exclusion at home and overseas imperialism. The international expositions between Reconstruction and the eve of the United States entry into World War I were "the most extravagant cultural events" of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era.1 The World's Fairs conferred legitimacy on ...


Early Tourism And Harriet Beecher Stowe: The Discovery Of Stowe's First Published Descriptions Of Florida, John T. Foster, Jr. 2022 University of Central Florida

Early Tourism And Harriet Beecher Stowe: The Discovery Of Stowe's First Published Descriptions Of Florida, John T. Foster, Jr.

Florida Historical Quarterly

While many living today may not realize it, Harriet Beecher Stowe was the most famous American woman of the mid-nineteenth century. In fact, she was so famous that when she visited President Lincoln at the White House, he is believed to have greeted her with these words: "So you're the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war." This statement, of course, refers to the far-reaching impact of Stowe's novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin. For all its faults, this work exposed a horrible truth about slavery: that a slave owner possessed the right to maim ...

"We Are Not Hired Help": The 1968 Statewide Florida Teacher Strike And The Formation Of Modern Florida, Jody Baxter Noll

Florida Historical Quarterly

During the spring of 2010, a debate over merit pay and tenure for teachers swept across Florida. While this was not a new debate, the introduction of Senate Bill 6 by the Republican led-legislature fanned the flames of discord between teachers and the state. Calling for a merit-based system of pay and teacher retention through standardized testing, as well as diminishing local school board autonomy, the bill directly conflicted with educators' demands for professional respect in a continuously besieged occupation. In passing the bill, the Legislature created an atmosphere of resistance among Florida's teachers who flooded the Governor's ...

The Fractured American Dream: From Country Club Living To "Suburban Slum" In Latino Orlando, Simone P. Delerme

Florida Historical Quarterly

One evening in July of 2010, an Internet user who goes by "GinnyFavers" posted a question to the city-data.com forum: "I heard from someone that the Buena Ventura Lakes (BVL) subdivision was a majority to all Hispanic area. Just curious if that's really true? No negative implication intended! -Amanda."1 Twenty-two minutes later "Metrowester" responded. "Yes, BVL is a primarily Hispanic area. Landstar homes was heavily marketed in Puerto Rico several years ago."2 "Metrowester" continued, and spoke favorably about the Publix Sabor supermarket in the area with a deli that serves Cuban coffee, pastries, and roasted pork ...


Twentieth-Century Florida: A Bibliographic Essay, Gary R. Mormino 2022 University of Central Florida

Twentieth-Century Florida: A Bibliographic Essay, Gary R. Mormino

Florida Historical Quarterly

On New Year's Day, 1920, Florida was a sparsely populated, geographically isolated, and politically insignificant state. The state's population, the smallest in the South, had not yet reached the one million mark. Florida ranked thirty-second of forty-eight states, having just surpassed Colorado in population.1 In comparison, southern neighbors Alabama and Georgia recorded populations of 2.4 and 2.9 million inhabitants. The influence of North Florida and the Panhandle had crested by 1920. By 1930, new places and cities that had not even been born in 1910 signified the pulse beat and direction of Florida: Boca Raton ...

"A New Social Awakening": James Hudson, Florida A. & M. University's Religious Life Program, And The 1956 Tallahassee Bus Boycott, Larry O. Rivers

Florida Historical Quarterly

On May 28, 1956, an event occurred on the Tallahassee campus of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) that fused an educator and religious leader, his teachings on nonviolence, a detestable act of racial discrimination, and the passion of well-prepared university students into a crusade for social change.

Introduction: 500 Years Of Florida History-The Twentieth Century, Connie L. Lester 2022 University of Central Florida

Introduction: 500 Years Of Florida History-The Twentieth Century, Connie L. Lester

Florida Historical Quarterly

This is the last of the special issues devoted to the celebration of Florida's 500 Years of History. Launched in 2013 in conjunction with the state's commemoration of the landing of Juan Ponce de Leon on the peninsula, the Florida Historical Quarterly editors proposed a multi-year, multi-issue endeavor to capture a snapshot of Florida history at the second decade of the twenty-first century. As conceived the project called for 6 special issues, one each for the 16th, 17th, 18th, and 20th centuries and two for the long 19th century (1800-1920). At completion, the special issues included the work ...

The Evolving Suffrage Militancy Of Mary Nolan, Judith Pouche 2022 University of Central Florida

The Evolving Suffrage Militancy Of Mary Nolan, Judith Pouche

Florida Historical Quarterly

Petite, frail, physically impaired, and seventy-three years old, Mary Nolan could easily be underestimated by anyone foolish enough to equate physical vigor with mental strength. On November 14, 1917, several men brutalized the Jacksonville grandmother as she endured what suffragists would soon call the "Night of Terror" in a Virginia prison. One guard had told her, "I'll take you and handle you, and you'll be sorry you made me." Nolan recalled: "A man sprang at me, and caught me by the shoulder. ... I was jerked down the steps and away into the dark ... [,and later] they pushed me ...

African Americans In Florida, 1870-1920: A Historiographical Essay, David H. Jackson 2022 University of Central Florida

African Americans In Florida, 1870-1920: A Historiographical Essay, David H. Jackson

Florida Historical Quarterly

The history of African Americans in Florida is a subject area that remains under-researched. While historians have generally done a commendable job examining the topic for the last fifty years or so, Florida still lags behind other southern states when it comes to scholarship on its African American populace. Thus, this essay seeks to review some of the scholarly works that have been published on the subject of African Americans in Florida from 1870 to 1920. It is arranged thematically with scholarship addressing major topics such as: Reconstruction, racial relations, racial violence, politics, religion, urban history, labor, black women, education ...


The Right To Vote And The Long Nineteenth Century In Florida, Robert Cassanello 2022 University of Central Florida

The Right To Vote And The Long Nineteenth Century In Florida, Robert Cassanello

Florida Historical Quarterly

These special issues are meant to reflect on the quincentennial history of Ponce de Leon's landing on the shores of the Florida peninsula and as historians we are challenged to understand and come to terms with the consequence of those actions. The editors of the Florida Historical Quarterly have asked the contributors to explore Florida's past through the lens of a century long view. The nineteenth century presents such a unique challenge for these types of historical reflections because so much by way of technology, communication, transportation, societal relations transformed more rapidly than any previously recorded century. The ...

Special Issue Introduction By Fhq Editors, Connie L. Lester

Florida Historical Quarterly

In the planning of the 500 Years of Florida History series, we decided that the complexity of the nineteenth century was too challenging for a single issue. As a result, we divided the century at the end of Reconstruction and expanded it to 1920 and the extension of suffrage to American women with the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The seven articles that focused on the earlier decades of nineteenth century appeared in the winter issue of Volume 94 and were edited by James Cusick. Those articles covered a range of topics from literature to ...
