Reimagining Emancipation: From the U.S. to the West Indies

May 20 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Island SPACE Caribbean Museum hosts a hybrid panel discussion — including both African-American and Caribbean perspectives — on how the country has evolved since slavery, contemporary positions on equity and equality, and how collective experiences can improve.

Dr. Byrnes serves as the Director for the Office of Social Justice and Inclusion at Florida International University.
