Dr. Andy Eisen, co-director of the Community Education Project (CEP) and a Visiting Assistant Professor of History at Stetson University, will share research on slavery and Indian removal in Volusia County conducted by incarcerated students.
After screening a brief documentary film, Unsilenced: Rewriting History from Prison, Dr. Eisen will address violent erasures of settler colonialism that shape the public understanding of this region, share stories of Black and indigenous people who lived, labored, and struggled for freedom in East Florida, and reflect on the radical potential of collaborative community-based public history research.
