State, Local, and National Campaigns: The Civil Rights Movement
November 5, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Ormond Beach Historical Society is hosting their 2022-2023 live Speaker Series program. The third presentation in this series is based on extensive research on Florida’s Civil Rights Movement done by Dr. Michael Butler. Attendees will learn that the idea that Florida did not experience the tumult of other Deep South states during the Civil Rights Movement is a popular misconception. Florida exceptionalism in relationship to the black freedom struggle will also be discussed and placed in its proper regional and national perspective.
Michael Butler is the Kenan Distinguished Professor of History at Flagler College. Dr. Butler co-authored Victory After the Fall: The Memories of Civil Rights Activist H. K. Matthews, and has published numerous essays in various academic journals.
This program is free, including an opening reception with refreshments at 9:30AM. Free parking is available in the lot adjacent to the building, and the handicap entrance is at the rear of the building. Funding is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Ormond Beach Historical Society.
