Stetson Kennedy Unpublished Readings + Birthday Potluck

Published emily - Sat, 10/06/2018 - 3:13pm

In honor of Stetson Kennedy’s 102nd birthday, the Civic Media
Center will have a potluck dinner on Saturday, October 6, at 6pm, followed by a program called "Voicing the Un-Voiced Stetson: Readings of Unpublished Pieces from the Papers of Stetson Kennedy". Sandra Parks, Stetson’s wife, came to the CMC and suggested the reading of recently found writings of the famed anti-racist, civil rights and environmental author and activist. Jim Cusick from the Smathers Library at UF will bring essays, poetry and other unpublished short writings from their collection, and we will all share in the readings.

The CMC’s official name is Civic Media Center and Stetson
Kennedy Library Inc. because Stetson donated his personal
library of over 2,500 books to the CMC before he died in 2011,
and these books are integrated into the various sections of the
CMC’s collection.

The event will also serve as a birthday party for Gainesville
community activist Kali Blount. Vegan or vegetarian foods are
preferred but not absolutely required
