Join the USF Libraries on Thursday, July 14th at 2PM for a virtual event on Microsoft Teams and Listen to History, featuring Governor LeRoy Collins and his Pivotal Speech on Race in 1960.
A conversation will be led by Special Collections curator Andy Huse, USF History Professor K. Stephen Price, PhD, and Tampa Bay History Center curator Fred Hearns that travels back in time to when civil rights demonstrations and racial violence spread across Florida. Governor LeRoy Collins made a landmark speech on race relations that secured his legacy as one of Florida’s most memorable governors and cost him his career as an elected official. You do not want to miss this exciting conversation!
