Florida Matters: Telling Tampa Bay Stories – Midtown Part II

Daylina Miller/WUSF

Telling Tampa Bay Stories is a new project from WUSF News, where our journalists will be visiting some of the region’s lesser-known spots -- to record stories from members of those communities.

We featured some of those stories this week on Florida Matters.

Recently, we met with residents at the "Carter G. Woodsen African American Museum" in St. Petersburg -- including a man who recalled being a bit on the mischievous side as a child.

Thomas "Jet" Jackson was among those who shared their stories recently with WUSF News and USF St. Petersburg journalism students.

Lottie Watts is our Florida Mattersproducer, and she also covers health and health policy for.
Carson Cooper has become a favorite of WUSF listeners as the host of "Morning Edition" on WUSF 89.7 since he took the job in 2000. Carson has worked in Tampa Bay radio for three decades.
