Author
In Seminole County, author and well-known local historian Altermese Smith Bentley has skillfully compiled the images and stories of residents from the county's traditionally African-American communities, including Georgetown, Goldsboro, Lawtonville, and Winwood. Through unique oral accounts, the records of an earlier time, and the priceless photographs that bring history into striking relief, this valuable retrospective pays tribute to the legacy of those determined individuals who lived, worked, raised families, and made the history that belongs to Seminole County.
