About the event

A panel of four distinguished community leaders will discuss the issues the University of Florida has caused within Gainesville’s Black community. They will discuss issues of violence, housing and property ownership, income and labor, health care, and educational disparities, among others. Staff and students from the Proctor Program will also provide background on some of the important historical figures whose activism and work has shaped and supported Alachua County Residents during the harmful expansion of the university. Following the presentation guests will have the chance to discuss solutions and initiate collaboration.

Dinner and refreshments will be served.

As part of the event, members of the Alachua County Community Remembrance Project will also showcase special artifacts including homemade quilts created by community members.
