Description

The section "Contemporary Life" found on pp. 18-21 of the manuscript copy of The Florida Negro housed in the State Archives of Florida (S1585) and available through the Florida Memory website of the State Library and Archives of Florida.

This text mentions many of the individuals that figure in Muse's short biographies, including Zora Neale Hurston (see Zora Neale Hurston),
James Weldon Johnson, Rosamond Johnson, and T. Thomas Fortune (see James Weldon Johnson and Thomas Fortune and James Weldon Johnson). It also appears to allude to, without mentioning by name, the African American newspapers that Muse profiles (see Jacksonville Journal, "Star Edition," The Jacksonville Advocate, Florida Times-Union, "Star Edition," and The Tattler).
