Upcoming Events

Two Takes on a Dream: Mary McLeod Bethune & Zora Neale Hurston February 11 @ 7:00 pm

undefined

Presented by the Florida Humanities Council and the Dr, Carter G Woodson African American History Museum...

Throughout the struggle for equality in the United States, civil rights activists often disagreed on the direction of the movement or how to best attain their goals. These differences of opinion are perhaps best exemplified by Mary McLeod Bethune and Zora Neale Hurston and their vision of a racially integrated society. Veteran chatauquans, Ersula Odom Knox and Phyllis McEwen, portray these iconic women and provide insight into the world in which they lived and their vision for the future of race in America.
