Founded in 1916 Jacksonville, FL as Eagle Film City and purchased by Richard E. Norman in 1921, the Norman Studios was among the nation's first to produce "race films" starring African American characters in positive, non-stereotypical roles. Today, Norman's five-building studio complex survives in Jacksonville's Old Arlington neighborhood. Our 501(c)3 organization is working to reunify, restore and reopen this historic complex as a thriving community, learning, research and tourism center.
