South Florida People of Color presents the Race in Retrospect series, a “deep dive” into racism in South Florida featuring three widely recognized Black History scholars. Co-hosted by The Betsy Hotel and generously supported by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council. Our third author in the series, Dr. Marvin Dunn, presents his book “A History of Florida Through Black Eyes”. Dr. Dunn writes, “I know Florida. I was born in Florida during the reign of Jim Crow and have lived to see black astronauts blasted into the heavens from Cape Canaveral. For three quarters of a century I have lived mostly in Florida and I have seen her flowers and her warts. This book is about both.”
