Description

Race in Retrospect

Lecture Series with Community Dialogues

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 Universal Truth Center For Better Living and generously supported by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council.

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

Racism is more than hurt feelings and ending it will take more than just love and polite conversation. Join the South Florida People of Color as they bring their Unity360 Community Race Dialogue to Miami Gardens. Participants will experience a powerful exploration of the history of racism in American society and an interactive examination of the continuing presence of systemic racism and bias in our society. We will weigh strategies to disrupt and dismantle it, including the potential role of reparations. Using carefully facilitated dialogues and structured activities, this Unity360 Race Community Race Dialogue will deepen your understanding of the historical roots of our contemporary racial crisis and provide a courageous and healing path forward.

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