Editor's Preface


This issue of the Florida Historical Quarterly is dedicated to the exploration and consideration of political and economic relations between black and white Floridians in the first half of the twentieth century. Articles by Jon Evans, Pam Iorio, Leonard R. Lempel, and Raymond A. Mohl examine the attitudes and actions that shaped racial life in Tallahassee. Tampa, Daytona Beach, and Miami, respectively. Following the articles, David H. Jackson Jr., Glenda Alice Rabby, and Clarence Taylor elaborate on the themes of the articles, offering ideas about how early twentieth-century Florida fits into American and southern history, and the lessons we can take from our racial past.
