Description

Episode 22 of RICHES Podcast Documentaries: Hannibal Square. RICHES Podcast Documentaries are short form narrative documentaries that explore Central Florida history and are locally produced. These podcasts can involve the participation or cooperation of local area partners.

Episode 22 explores Hannibal Square, or the westside of Winter Park, which was populated primarily by African Americans. Winter Park was established in the 1860s around the railroad tracks, which served commerce and travel in order to establish a vacation town for wealthy white visitors. Hannibal Square was officially founded in the 1801 to provide a source for African-American labor to build and serve the vacation destination. While deeply segregated for years, railroad jobs and domestic service positions led to higher levels of education, business and home ownership, and relative prosperity for black residents. This podcast includes interviews with Dr. Julian C. Chambliss and Fairolyn Livingston.

Abstract

Winter Park was strategically built in the 1860s around the railroad which served commerce and travel in order to establish a vacation town for wealthy white visitors. Hannibal Square, or the “west side,” was officially founded twenty years later, providing a source of African-American labor to build and serve the vacation destination. While deeply segregated for years, railroad jobs and domestic service positions led to higher levels of education, business and home ownership, and relative prosperity for black residents. Dr. Julian C. Chambliss and Fairolyn Livingston explore the ways in which members of the community have fought to preserve the heritage of this important piece of Central Florida history.
