Convening in Florida: Civil Rights Leaders Unite Against Anti-Black Hate and Suppression of Freedoms

Commets: 0

Efforts to combat anti-Black hate in the state have been exacerbated by actions taken by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, including banning Black history courses and books by Black authors. Civil rights leaders have asked President Joe Biden to bring last year’s United We Stand anti-hate summit to Jacksonville.
