      Since 2005, an interdisciplinary research team has been seeking material remains of an early nineteenth-century maroon community in southern Tampa Bay. Angola is part of the larger history of self-emancipated Africans resisting slavery across the Florida Gulf Coast and ultimately finding freedom in Red Bays in the Bahamas (see http://www.diaspora.uiuc.edu/news0608/news0608-4.pdf for background).  In mid-January, the Looking for Angola research team reviewed the last five years of research and concluded the academic discussions with a public presentation at New College of Florida, in Sarasota.  The video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2jZl9W92W4 shows the libation ceremony that opened the event, segments from Vickie Oldham's new documentary on the project, the panel discussion with project director Vickie Oldham (Fort Valley State University), Rosalyn Howard (the University of Central Florida), Terry Weik (University of South Carolina), and Uzi Baram (New College of Florida), and some of the questions/answers session with the audience.
