SPP is excited to offer this special tour along the "Deuces" (22nd St. S.), the vibrant main street of St. Pete’s African American community during the segregation era. Today, 22nd St. remains as a part of what makes St. Pete special and it is the locale of the city's African-American heritage trail. The tour will be led by Gwendolyn Reese who will offer some of her reflections and experiences in growing up in the neighborhood and Jon Wilson, a former St. Petersburg Times journalist and author who has written about the neighborhood. These two guides offer a heart felt and fascinating look at a part of the  'Burg that has often been overlooked but has a fascinating history.
