African Journalists

African Journalists - In honor of the journalists coming to the Poynter Institute next week. While they were originally scheduled to visit the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, concerns over Ebola raised by faculty, students and staff caused USFSP to cancel. The Poynter Institute is located at 801 3rd Street South, St. Pete, across the street from USFSP.

The photos were taken around 2010.

You can read more either at the Health News Florida summary or the Poynter's news release.)

Clothesline Project

Clothesline Project - Some of these photos have been posted on this blog before, as well as in the documentary archives of Robin Shwedo Productions.

The Clothesline Project started in 1990 on Cape Cod, MA to bring attention to domestic violence.

PLEASE NOTE: If you, or someone you know is being abused and/or otherwise affected by domestic violence, please call for help. Call 911 where available (or, if you're outside the U.S., your local emergency number); if your area does not have 911, try to memorize the local police emergency phone number. Other numbers are here: Hotline Phone Numbers

Domestic Violence Hotline:

800.621.HOPE (4673)

Crime Victims Hotline:

866.689.HELP (4357)

Rape & Sexual Assault Hotline:


TDD phone number for all hotlines:


You can also check out The National Domestic Violence Hotline or call the hotline at 1−800−799−7233 or TTY 1−800−787−3224. (If you're being abused, be aware that computer use can be monitored, even if you shut the computer down. If you're able to check from a safe computer - at libraries, computer cafes, a friend's computer - that can be a great option.)

One of the clubs at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg brought part of the Clothesline Project to the USFSP campus several years ago. The first few photos are from USFSP.

This is part of the group that brought the Clothesline Project to USFSP. THANKS, EVERYONE!

The remainder of these were taken at a park in St. Petersburg, Florida.
