The Florida Memory Project presents a selection of historical records that illustrate significant moments in Florida history, educational resources for students of all ages and archival collections for historical research. The Project utilizes selected original records, photographs and other materials from the collections of the State Library and Archives of Florida.

Topics include direct actions, Governor Askew's support of busing for integration, school integration, civil rights leader C. K. Steele, and the race riots in Saint Augustine.
