Program Description:

Join Dr. Kitty Oliver for this multimedia program blends lively cross-cultural stories, research and discussion on coming of age with integration in ethnically diverse Florida in a 21st Century dialogue on race in a non-confrontational way. The program draws from a multi-cultural archive of over 125 oral histories, candid intergenerational videos, and audio interviews on race relations and experiences. Dr. Oliver explores how far we’ve come and how progress can be made in a hopeful way that inspires our youth. As a creative kick-off for or wrap-up to a community event or series, this program is informative, entertaining and thought-provoking.
