'La Retaguardia de Tampa': The Spanish Civil War and its impact on Florida and U.S. History

ALBA, in cooperation with Departments of History and Social Sciences of the University of South Florida, organized an ALBA Summer Teachers Institute in Tampa, Florida, from July 19-23, 2010.  This summer institute focuses on the strong support for the Spanish Republic among the city’s Cuban, Spanish and Italian communities. The July, 2010 application and directions for applying can be found here.  A full description and schedule is available in our brochure.

Please read below for description and links to lesson plans created by our 2009 Alumni Teachers at the first ALBA Institute for Teachers in Florida.

Featured Documents: Attached is a typescript of Aida Gonzalez's recollection of her experience during the SCW.  A resident of Tampa, Aida shared her story with the first ALBA Teachers' Institute held in Tampa in June 2009. This is one example of the rich archival resources for the Tampa Institute. Also see letter written by Aida Gonzalez.
