Florida Talks: Black Florida & Voices of Change Webinar SeriesThursday 4/8
Join Virginia Key Beach Park Trust and the Florida Humanities in a Florida Talks virtual webinar series entitled, “Black Florida & Voices of Change.”
The webinar series will help educate, highlight and reflect on critical black Florida stories of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, Florida's Lynching and the African Diaspora Experience.
Hosted by Mr. Guy Forchion, Executive Director of the Virginia Key Beach Park Trust, these stories are to unify rather than divide communities by highlighting our priorities of family, equal access, economic stability, and community.
