The Saturday morning Unity360 Community Dialogues are a critical component of the Race in Retrospect Series. The dialogues are an opportunity for the authors to connect the past with the present, and to invite participants to engage in open discussion of the topics and questions raised by their books. In his second conversation with the South Florida People Color audience, Dr. Ortiz will participate in an in-depth dialogue on the significance of his book and America’s popularized view of our collective history. The conversation will continue to bring into focus the current crisis of anti-black violence in the nation.
