ASALH Saint Petersburg Branch Event, From Angola to the Present: A Conversation on History, Race, and Social Justice in Manatee County
February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
Branch President Attorney Jacqueline Hubbard represents the Saint Petersburg Branch on a panel discussion on race, racism and racial injustices in the Bradenton/Manatee/Pinellas County area.
“From the slave raid that destroyed the maroon community of Angola in 1821, to the enslaved in the village of Manatee, Jim Crow laws, local lynchings, and the Civil Rights movement of the 20th Century, themes of racial injustice are a little known or seldom acknowledged part of Manatee County’s history. To connect these threads is to reckon with their meaning and to acknowledge their abiding impact. A panel of scholars and community leaders will discuss the impacts of this history and then engage the audience in a discussion of how today’s social justice movement can improve the future for our community.”
