Dr. Martha Bireda in conversation with Patrick Arthur Jackson and Silk Jazmyne Hindus

April 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Lifting the Veil with Dr. Martha Bireda. W.E.B.DuBois used the “veil” as a metaphor for the color line of racial inequalities and injustice in the United States. The “veil “ symbolizes the culturally conditioned narrative that prevents the larger society from seeing the virtues, values, strengths, agency, and contributions of African Americans. Through her stories Martha Bireda presents a narrative which demonstrates the intellect, courage, determination, strength, ingenuity, grace, and dignity of the African American.

Funding for this program is provided by Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with The Academy of American Poets, The Woodson African American Museum of Florida, Tombolo Books, and the City of St. Petersburg.
