Seminole State College of Florida has announced the lineup for its 2020-21 Speaker Series, which will include two virtual presentations.
The Innocence Project of Florida, Oct. 15.
The Innocence Project of Florida is a nonprofit organization that works to find and free innocent people who have been wrongfully imprisoned in Florida and help them adapt to their new lives outside prison. Representatives from the organization will discuss their mission of helping innocent prisoners obtain their freedom and rebuild their lives. They will be joined by exonerees James Bain and Nathan Myers who will share their history and the impact of their wrongful convictions.
The virtual presentation will include a Q&A session.
Dr. Regina N. Bradley, Jan. 27, 2021
In partnership with the 32nd Annual Zora Neale Hurston™ Festival of the Arts and Humanities (ZORA!™ Festival), the College will host Dr. Regina N. Bradley, assistant professor of English and African diaspora studies at Kennesaw State University and author of “Boondock Kollage: Stories from the Hip Hop South.”
Using historical, spectral and hip hop-infused fiction, Dr. Bradley will discuss the issues of race, place and identity in the post–Civil Rights American South to question the intersections of regionalism and black culture in current American society.
The presentation will include a Q&A session.
