With A Made-Up Mind: The History of the Black Vote in Southwest Florida
December 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
WGCU Public Media is hosting a screening and discussion of “With a Made Up Mind: the History of the Black Vote in Southwest Florida.” From Jim Crow legislation at the turn of the century to today’s push to return civil rights to citizens who have served their felony sentences, this short film examines the history of the fight for ballot access in Florida. WGCU will ask if there are other local stories that should be included in a longer form documentary on this topic or covered by WGCU News
This event is free, but registration is suggested. Please email Anne Stavely at [email protected] to reserve your spot.
The short film “With a Made Up Mind: the History of the Black Vote in Southwest Florida” and related programming are funded in part through a Florida Humanities Broadcasting Hope Media Grant in partnership with WGCU Public Media.
