Florida Talks: Black Florida & Voices of Change Webinar Series

TAGS: Lecture
Thursday 3/11

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.

Webinar Dates & Titles Include:

3/11/21- Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Comes to Life presented by Ersula k. Odom
Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune (1875–1955) was the founder of Bethune-Cookman University. She served as a New Deal government official—in one of the 20 highest-level offices held by women in the administration, and the highest held by an African American woman; was founder of FDR’s “black cabinet;” served as president of the National Association of Colored Women; and founded and served as president of the National Council of Negro Women.
