Calling Our Culture: The Destruction of Rosewood

September 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Calling Our Culture is a three-part series where we will explore the complexities of different cultures within our community, through the humanities.

In this portion, we will explore a critical analysis of Rosewood, a predominantly black community destroyed in 1923 during a racially motivated attack, and other majority-black cities in Florida within the context of group economics and how that tradition among African Americans was destroyed.

This event will be held in-person at the Maitland Public Library’s Community Room.

If you are unable to attend in-person, you can join us via Zoom.
