Miami and Florida’s Black history

The New Tropic’s archives are full of stories about how African-Americans, Bahamians, and Haitians have shaped the city we live in today. In honor of Black History Month, we’ve gathered it all together in one place. Poke around a little: you’ll probably learn something fascinating about the history of the Magic City.

South Dade Guide

South Dade, loosely defined as the area south of Palmetto Bay and extending down to the Everglades, is one of the most special parts of the county. Initially a mosquito-filled, marshy tropical wilderness, the region has evolved into a thriving agricultural and residential community. Pick some fresh strawberries, travel the lush bike trails, stop to gaze at gorgeous orchids, grab a warm cinnamon roll, and cool down with a delicious milkshake. These are just a few of the things you can do with an afternoon in South Dade.
