About this Event

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.

Join us to hear Dr. Marvin Dunn as he discusses his book, A History of Florida Through Black Eyes. Blacks were left out or minimized in most accounts of Florida history. To have included our real story would have meant telling the embarrassing, horrific, bloody truth about the underbelly of Florida and the brutal bigots who controlled the state for so long.

​In our Unity360 Community Dialogue, Dr. Dunn will examine how this history has impacted the present, and how these anti-Black forces show up in Florida today.

Attendance at the Thursday evening book talk is not required to participate in the Saturday morning dialogue. Register for one or both!

Saturday morning, October 5, 2019: Unity360 Community Race Dialogue, Arcola Lakes Branch Library, Miami
