Feb. 16-17 | Multiple events/locations
The Center for Arts in Medicine will host UF alumna Kitty Oliver on Feb. 16 and 17. Oliver—a veteran South Florida journalist, author, oral historian and professor—will present “An Evening of Jazz and Multicolored Memoirs” at the Thomas Center on Feb. 16 at 7:30 p.m., “Race and Change Across Cultures and Generations” at the Constans Theater on Feb. 17 at 2 p.m. and “Telling YOUR Story, Changing OUR Lives: Using Oral Histories on Race and Change to Make a Difference” in the Fine Arts Building B, room 105, on Feb. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
These presentations are intended to bring the community together to share ideas and promote discussion around issues of race and diversity. Oliver’s visit is part of visiting scholar Jeffrey Pufahl’s initiative called The Diversity Project, which explores issues around diversity at UF through oral histories, interviews and story circles, which will be translated into a multimedia theater presentation. If you’re interested in telling your story, please contact Jeffrey Pufahl. Learn more.
