Voices from Florida: Exploring Miami’s Haitian History
September 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Miami-Dade Public Library System hosts the second in the Voices of Florida lecture series. Participants can learn about the history of Haitians in Miami before the mass migration in the 1970s and hear stories highlighting the solidarity between African Americans and Haitians from community historians and Black Miami-Dade founder Nadege Green. She is the project founder of @BlackMiamiDade, a multimedia history and storytelling platform that resists the erasure of Miami-Dade County’s Black past.
Registration is required. A Zoom link will be emailed to registrants within 24 hours of the event start time. For more information, contact the branch host at 305-375-5572 or [email protected].
Funding for this speaker series is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Miami-Dade Public Library System.
