Paul Ortiz Discusses His New Book, Emancipation Betrayed, on 21 March

Monday, 21 March, 12:00 noon, Perkins Library Rare Book Room
Paul Ortiz discusses Emancipation Betrayed: The Hidden History of Black Organizing and White Violence in Florida From Reconstruction to the Bloody Election of 1920. The book explains how African Americans in Florida organized the first statewide civil rights movement in the U.S. and why these events are missing from the nation's historical record. Paul Ortiz received his Ph.D. in history from Duke in 2000 and is currently professor of Community Studies at the University of California at Santa Cruz. He is the co-editor of Remembering Jim Crow: African Americans Tell About Life in the Segregated South, winner of the 2002 Lillian Smith Book Award. The event is co-sponsored by the Duke University Libraries' John Hope Franklin Collection for African and African American Documentation, the African & African American Studies Program, the Department of History, and the Gothic Bookshop.
