"Speaking Out - Conversations with Dorothy"

Date & Time:  Friday, November 9 2018

Featuring: Ms. Magazine co-founder and nationally-known civil rights activist, Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, along with faculty and leadership from the University of North Florida

Location: UNF Library, 2nd Floor Sculpture Area

Description: The UNF Library presents an intimate conversation with American Civil Rights icon and Ms. Magazine co-founder, Dorothy Pitman-Hughes as she speaks out and shares her powerful biography. Ms. Pitman-Hughes will share her touching and extraordinary first-hand accounts of being an author of a banned book, collaborating with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., setting Feminism ablaze with her collaborator Gloria Steinem, and so much more -- while her narrative is recorded by the oral history project, the Sankofa Narrative Project, a partnership of professors from UNF who won a grant to record important oral histories of segregation and integration in NE Florida. This discussion will be moderated by UNF English professor Tru Leverette and UNF student Zsa Zsa Laing.
