For the month of April, Dr. Barbara Berglund featured her “Urban Public History” class in the “Do the Local Motion!” program. The program is run through Downtown Tampa Partnerships, which puts on tours for the public in Tampa’s urban areas. As a way to combine learning with community engagement, Dr. Berglund divided her students into four distinct groups to lead four separate tours around the Tampa area. The tours featured an early history of Tampa, a peak into Downtown Tampa’s history of mob activity, and cultural spectacles like Franklin Street and memorials around town. To view full coverage of the walks go to: ABC News, USF Magazine, and 83 degrees.
