Book Reading of Beyond Integration: The Black Freedom Struggle in Escambia County, Florida, 1960-1980
Flagler College Associate Professor of History Dr. Michael Butler will be giving a reading on his new book Beyond Integration: The Black Freedom Struggle in Escambia County, Florida, 1960-1980 on Thursday. His book examines how institutional forms of cultural racism persisted well beyond the visible signs of racial integration in the 1960s. During his talk, he will discuss the process of researching and writing a book that, according to him, still has an impact today on race relations in Florida and throughout the nation. The free event will be at 7 p.m. in the Flagler Room in Ponce Hall.
