Freedom for All: Liberation in Haiti and Florida

The South Florida People of Color, in partnership with the Broward County Library’s African American Research Library and Cultural Center, hosts a discussion panel in recognition of Haitian Flag Day on May 18th and Florida’s Emancipation Day on May 20th. This panel brings together historians and cultural experts for a transnational conversation about freedom struggles in the Caribbean and the Americas to educate the public about the two holidays.

Registration is suggested but not required to attend. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Broadcasting Hope Media Grant in partnership with the South Florida People of Color.
