Event description

Description

South Florida People of Color presents the Race in Retrospect series, a “deep dive” into racism in South Florida featuring three widely recognized Black History scholars. Co-hosted by The Betsy Hotel and generously supported by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council, this series will take place from August through October 2019.

Dr. Tameka Hobbs, author of Democracy Abroad, Lynching at Home: Racial Violence in Florida, addresses the white violence frequently experienced by blacks during the Jim Crow era. "Hobbs unearths four lynchings that are critical to the understanding of the origins of civil rights in Florida." - Derrick E. White
