Celebrating Black History Month: Hidden History 2019

Local News

From an all Black town that vanished in the late 1800s, to the home of Jessie Owens, our WFLA 2019 Hidden History Special covers stories of the African-American history from Tampa Bay and beyond.

We travel to Eatonville Florida to visit the historic black town… believed to be the oldest all black town still in existence.

We tell the story of a man called Fortune. He was born in 1798, but not buried until 2013. We explain why. 

Watch our Hidden History special, filled with stories rich in history and depth.
