Kitty Oliver, PhD: Multicolored Memories of a Black Southern Girl
In honor of Black History Month
Kitty Oliver takes readers on a journey of exploration from her hometown of Jacksonville to the University of Florida as one of its first African American freshmen in 1965, and far beyond. One reviewer describes it as “a thinking woman’s memoir of a journey with many side trips.” With humor, poignancy, and lyrical language, Oliver gives an entertaining presentation of “Multicolored Memories” designed for audiences across cultures and generations with video, audio, and music, and interaction afterwards.
Dr. Kitty Oliver, creator of the cross-cultural Race and Change Initiative, is a veteran journalist (Miami Herald), author, oral historian, media producer, professional singer, and adjunct professor at Florida Atlantic University. Her Race and Change Oral History Archive is housed by the African American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC) in Fort Lauderdale.
