Portraits of the Black Experience in Bay County is an ongoing, evolving initiative to document the collective history of individuals and their communities.
Spearheaded by the research of FSU Panama City Professor, Robert Cvornyek, the project's mission is to preserve, reimagine, and share stories that otherwise may be lost to history.
