The Jacksonville Melting Pot: The Diverse Cultures of Northeast Florida
Hear the stories of immigrants who made Jacksonville their home
People from all over the world have migrated to Jacksonville, Florida. The Jacksonville Melting Pot: The Diverse Culture of Northeast Florida project captures, through interviews, the stories of some of these individuals who call Jacksonville home. While the individuals are from highly diverse cultures and backgrounds, they often share similar stories and experiences.
Their stories were recorded during videotaped interviews by the Jacksonville Historical Society. The project, supported, in part by a grant from the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, underscores the unique and diverse make-up of Jacksonville.
The Melting Pot project is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Florida Division of Cultural Affairs. To listen to the stories of citizens from across the city, please follow this link The Jacksonville Historical Society YouTube
