Our friends at the Florida Black Historical Research Project are a beloved partner. Researching, collecting and disseminating knowledge of significant contributions Blacks have made in the State of Florida, they are an integral part of sharing Black and Seminole history of the Loxahatchee Battlefield.
The Florida Black Historical Research Project provides the general public with previously hidden or forgotten facts about Florida’s Black history, including early African arrivals, Black pirates, the mound builders, Southern Underground Railroad routes, Seminole Maroons and the Seminole Wars, particularly the 1838 Loxahatchee Battlefield in northern Palm Beach County.
Most notably, FBHRP has established and continues to maintain vital links to the Black Seminole communities of Oklahoma, descendants of Trail of Tears survivors expelled from Florida.
FBHRP conducts and encourages research, organizes presentations, and produces displays and publications, including “We R Florida,” the popular brief history by FBHRP founder, the late Isa Hamm Bryant, who pioneered the effort to bring these important stories to light.
