Josette Green, Founder and Historian of the St. Petersburg (FL) Black History Bike Tour.
The St. Petersburg Black History Bike Tour is an immersive experience attendees have described as “eye-opening” and “life-changing.” Led by Historian Josette Green, it takes participants to the locations where history began for St. Pete’s African American residents. The history reveals an understanding of the systemic racism in our city today and provides action items for creating positive change going forward. The donation-based public tour is available on limited dates September to May.
Introducing Hidden, Historic Campbell Park
We’re delighted to announce a new walking tour, starting in February 2024. Hidden, Historic Campbell Park, the culmination of three years of research, unveils the rich history of the first “Negro park” in the city of St. Pete. On an easy 1.5-mile walk, Josette shares intriguing, little-known stories of Black history that occurred in this now thriving park. Attendees leave with actionable ideas to advance racial equity.
SCENES FROM THE BIKE TOUR
We learned so much about the history of St. Petersburg. Josette is truly an experienced historian who has a passion for her work. I highly recommend it!
