Not So Black And White: A Community Conversation
October 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
WFSU Public Media is hosting a community conversation to extend the discussion of the podcast “Not So Black and White: A community’s divided history” to a live audience. This new podcast from WFSU Public Media traces the divided history of Tallahassee and Leon County. Through conversations with the community, WFSU investigates the barriers that continue to separate the places we live, work, play, educate and worship. Find out more about this podcast project by visiting wfsu.org or by subscribing to it on your favorite podcasting platform.
The community conversation will be led by guest experts Dr. Reginald Ellis and Dr. Andrea Oliver, who both served as content advisors for this project. Dr. Ellis is an associate professor of history and the assistant dean in the School of Graduate Studies and Research at Florida A&M University. He specializes in the history of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and African American leaders during the Jim Crow era. Dr. Andrea Oliver is a History Professor at Tallahassee Community College. The evening will also feature audio and video clips from the WFSU podcast.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required because seating is limited. Parking is plentiful and free. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Partnership Grant in collaboration with the WFSU Public Media.
