An Evening with Deesha Philyaw
The University of North Florida presents an engaging evening with the best-selling author (and Jacksonville native) Deesha Philyaw. She will be reading from her award-winning collection, The Secret Lives of Church Ladies, and there will be a book signing after. This event is part of The Justice Sessions, an ongoing series focusing on race, social justice, the arts, and Jacksonville’s past and present. These discussions bring together speakers from UNF and the local community to discuss Jacksonville’s history of racial and civil rights struggles. Each session aims to help create a better understanding of where we came from and how we can move forward united into the future.
This program is funded in part through a Humanities Centers Grant from Florida Humanities in partnership with the University of North Florida.
