About this Event

Culture Speaks:

Join us at the Coral Springs Museum of Art for an exciting afternoon of jazz and cabaret performance by Dr. Kitty Oliver. This is a thought-provoking, inspirational look at race from a different perspective that resonates with audiences across racial, ethnic and generational lines and sparks new conversations long after the program ends. This innovative “Race and Change” performance has family-friendly appeal to audiences across races, ethnicities, cultures and generations using music and storytelling to relate history to the present and bringing together people across cultures for an inspirational, entertaining event. Dr. Oliver travels widely doing presentations that blends her Ph.D. research focusing on race and ethnic communication with jazz music artistry, multimedia presentations, and poignant storytelling to create a memorable experience.

She is founder of the Race and Change Oral History Archive, one of the largest cross-cultural international collections of stories on race and ethnic relations in the country. The collection of 125 oral histories is housed in Special Collections at the African American Research Library and Cultural Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
