An Anthropologist Speaks About the African diaspora in West Palm Beach
February 12 @ 7:00 pm$20.00
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992, the Northwest Historic District was West Palm Beach (WPB)’s segregated African American community from the 1920s to the 1960s, during which it represented economic and community success. The neighborhood is currently being revitalized, thanks to the WPB Community Redevelopment Agency, and anthropologist Dr. Alisha Winn is a project consultant. She’ll talk about the neighborhood, the project and her broad awareness and involvement in other efforts to preserve the history of communities of color in Palm Beach County (PBC) at the Historical Society of PBC’s Distinguished Lecture Series that starts at 7 p.m. tonight at the Society in downtown WPB. The event is free for Society members, $20 for everyone else. For more information, click here. There’ll also be a Q-and-A session and refreshments.
