USF Series Explores Tampa's Historic Cuban Club

The History Center was among several community partners who helped produce Interpreting Cultural Heritage: Tampa Cubans and Their Club, 1886-present, an amazing 12-part video series focusing on the historic Cuban Club building, which was constructed in 1918 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

The videos are designed as a walking tour of the building and are narrated by retired District Court of Appeals Judge and Tampa native, E.J. Salcines.

Headed by USF project directors Drs. Paul Dosal, Mark I. Greenberg, and Christine McCall Probes, the History Center was part of a team that included the USF Tampa Libraries Florida Studies Center, El Circulo Cubano de Tampa, and the USF Humanities Institute. The project was funded by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council.

The 13-part series is designed to be used as podcasts for a walking tour of the Cuban Club, but also makes for enjoyable online viewing on YouTube.
