Bloody Streets and Crooked Lines: 100 Years of Black Voter Suppression in Florida

The Pinellas County African American History Museum presents “Bloody Streets and Crooked Lines: 100 Years of Black Voter Suppression in Florida” by editor James Abraham.

James Abraham is a former journalist who now edits and publishes books. His Book-Broker Publishers, which he founded in 2004, has produced and edited more than 500 books in a variety of genres. Abraham is a writing coach, critic, and lecturer. He has conducted the longest-running race relations class in Charlotte County. A graduate of Oberlin College, Abraham is the author of Century: A People’s History of Charlotte County. Registration and admission is not required to attend.
