Florida Humanities: Separate Is Not Equal: Jacksonville Community Conversation

April 16 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Throughout April, the Florida Press Educational Services will host community conversations across the state to discuss the lasting impact of Brown v. Board of Education. These programs are funded with a Florida Humanities Strategic Partnership Grant.

OneJax, 904ward, the NAACP, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, and the Florida Press Educational Services invite the public to a community discussion on the history and continuing impact of Brown v. Board of Education in the Sunshine State. This event will include a screening of the short documentary film Just Another Bombing?: This is Donal and Iona’s Story, a deeply moving account of surviving a 1964 Klan bombing in Jacksonville followed by a panel discussion. Panelists include: author Terri Brown Neal, Florida State College at Jacksonville’s Chief Investment Officer Cleve Warren, Dr. David Jamison, Assistant Professor of History at Edward Waters University, and author Tim Gilmore.

There is no charge to attend this event, but an RSVP by April 8 is required. Please register here.

In addition to our own Brown @ 70 program, Ohio Humanities is excited to share events from our partners and other state humanities councils to celebrate this landmark decision!
