Preserving Zora’s Eatonville: A Conversation with N.Y. Nathiri

N.Y. Nathiri, founding member and Executive Director of the Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community, Inc, will discuss her extensive work spearheading efforts to preserve the historic town of Eatonville, Florida, including her establishment of the annual Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities. Zora! Festival was named “One of 25 Cultural Tourism Success Stories” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Hosted by the University of North Florida, “The Justice Sessions” is a monthly webinar and discussion that brings 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 Center Grant from Florida Humanities in partnership with the University of North Florida.
