In recognition of Black History Month, Frost Bank and UTSA are proud to host this special event honoring P.F. Roberts and San Antonio's rich cultural history.

The site which is now the corner of Indianola Street and E. César E. Chavez Blvd., once was the address of 301 Victoria St., where the P.F. Roberts Store stood. The grocery store was one of few African American-owned businesses in San Antonio in the early 1900s.
