Tampa Central A.V.E. was created as a response to the increased desire to support black owned businesses in Tampa. This site hopes to enlighten and provide a one stop search resource for black business listings in Hillsborough County Florida. Tampa Central A.V.E. would also like to pay homage to the legacy of the African American history that came before us by sharing publically available content on Tampa's Historic Black business district, Central Avenue.
