Dr__Howard_headshot.jpgDr. Rosalyn Howard, Professor Emeritus in Cultural Anthropology at the University of Central Florida, will give a presentation on the relationship between Florida Seminole Indians and their African allies, often called Black Seminoles. Spanish Florida epitomized a sanctuary of freedom for Africans enslaved on the plantations of Alabama, the Carolinas and Georgia and truly was the southern route of the Underground Railroad until the United States annexed the territory in 1821.
