Florida Sentinel Bulletin Collection

Browse collection

The Florida Sentinel Bulletin is Florida's largest and most widely read African American newspaper. Founded in 1945, the paper is published twice weekly and distributed door-to-door and on news racks in Hillsborough, Polk, and Pinellas counties and via subscription throughout the United States.

In August 2012, the University of South Florida Tampa Library began a project to retrospectively digitize issues of the Florida Sentinel Bulletin in its collection. This is an ongoing project, with more issues added periodically.
