A conversation with Gramond McPherson about the ways in which the Orlando community of Paramore – a historically and still predominantly black community in central Florida – views itself and its history. His research project also explores how that community history is portrayed to the broader public.
"Every Tongue Got To Confess" is hosted by Professors of History Julian Chambliss (Rollins College) and Robert Cassanello (University of Central Florida). In the same spirit as Zora Neale Hurston - famous African American novelist, short story writer, folklorist, and anthropologist - this podcast explores the experiences and stories of communities of color.
All podcasts are brought to you by The Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community (the official sponsor of the Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities) as well the Department of History at Rollins College and its Africa and African American Studies Program.
In this season 2 episode Dr. Walter Greason discusses how academic component of the Annual Zora Festival – the Communities of Color Conference – can deepen the impact of the organization nationally and internationally in terms of sharing community solutions.
