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 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

In the Unity360 Community Race Dialogue, we will examine the history of antiblack violence in American history and how it helps to bring into focus the current crisis of antiblack violence in the nation that has taken the form of the police-involved shootings of unarmed Black people. Understanding the historic nature of this type of oppression reveals its systemic nature, but also offers clues on how to remedy the policies and attitudes that allow this specific type of violence to reoccur and also in understanding the value of the work of the Movement for Black Lives.

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