Research Colloquium - Voter Rights & Voter Suppression: Florida's Century of Struggle, 1920-2020

Thursday, September 23, 2021 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The UCF History Department is proud to host its Fall 2021 Research Colloquium, a series of presentations and conversations featuring faculty and student research. 

September's presentation features Voter Rights & Voter Suppression: Florida's Century of Struggle, 1920-2020 as the first phase of a three-part series in the Bending Towards Justice Digital Exhibit. A multi-level interactive exhibition, Bending Toward Justice presents documents, maps, photographs, oral histories, and secondary sources to engage the public and scholars in dialogs on inequality in Florida and the nation.

Join this informative session to learn about the research process used by the RICHES team to create this multifaceted digital humanities project. 

You are invited to also explore the initial exhibit which focuses on the Ocoee Massacre as a local case study of the national effort to suppress the vote. It highlights the violence experienced by those who defied intimidation and disfranchisement, yet it illustrates the hope and perseverance found in community history.
