First Hand History with Jack Price

Published Robbie - Mon, 12/03/2012 - 5:29pm

Lee J. (Jack) Price will speak at 7pm on Wednesday, December 5th at the Civic Media Center as part of our ongoing First Hand History series.

Now in his 80's, Jack is a well regarded community activist in Gainesville, but whose political activities go back to his youth when he met and became friends with Florida folklorist and human rights crusader Stetson Kennedy. Whether living in his native Florida, or in Atlanta or New York City, Jack was affiliated with the Civil Rights movement, but his interests went way beyond US borders, beginning with the Spanish Civil War but also Nicaragua, El Salvador and especially Chile. Most recently he co-authored an article in the Gainesville Iguana on the Halifax Media Group, which recently bought the Gainesville Sun.

The Jack Price first hand history event will be recorded and archived as part of the Civic Media Center collection of programs and oral histories going back 25 years. The event is free and open to the public. The CMC is at 433 S. Main St. in downtown Gainesville.
