Event Description:
The Latin American and Latino Studies Program is pleased to present Dr. Paul Ortiz, director of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and Associate Professor of history at the University of Florida. His talk will provide an intersectional history of the shared struggle for human rights from 1776 to the present and stems from his latest book, An African American and Latinx History of the United States, winner of the 2018 PEN Oakland-Josephine Miles Award for Literary Excellence. By recovering the internationalist perspectives of the anti-slavery, Reconstruction, and modern labor movements, the book places Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa at the center of the development of democracy in the United States and demonstrates that ordinary people sought to build bridges of solidarity between the nations of the Americas--not walls. More locally, he is also a member of the Elaine, Arkansas (1919) Race Massacre Truth Seeking Commission, which was perhaps the deadliest racial confrontation in the history of the U.S. resulting in over 200 murdered African Americans. This event is being co-sponsored by African and African American Studies.
