More About St. Petersburg's Historic 22nd Street South by Rosalie Peck; Jon Wilson
 
 
 
Overview
With this powerful, evocative new book, St. Petersburg residents Jon Wilson and Rosalie Peck present an informative narrative that explores the history of St. Petersburg, Florida s most vibrant African American neighborhood: 22nd Street South or the deuces. Throughout the city s history, no other area has personified strength for the African American community like this segregation-era thoroughfare.
A haven during the brutal Jim Crow years, 22nd Street South was a place where prominent businessmen and community leaders were the role models and residents and neighbors looked out for one another. The close-knit community encouraged strong, positive values even as its members were treated as second-class citizens in the wider world. Authors Wilson and Peck tell the story of this unique district and how its people and events contributed to and helped to shape the history of St. Petersburg in the context of the greater South and the Civil Rights Movement."
