Saundra Morene of Gullah Geechee Nation, Jacksonville leads an introductory discussion on Gullah Geechee history and the rich heritage of an Afro-creole people.
About The Justice Sessions: As people everywhere confront injustice, Duval faces its own limiting legacies. James Weldon Johnson, Zora Neale Hurston, and Toni Morrison all noted what Johnson called “the shame of this city.” But Jacksonville remains a place with incredible cross-cultural history and untapped potential. To move past our anxieties and divisiveness, we must look ourselves in the mirror, study what we see across time, and affirm with fresh feeling and knowledge that black lives matter. Thus, “The Justice Sessions,” steps toward respect in Bold City.
