Florida Conversations: Florida History Is Latino History

September 20, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Historian and author Sarah McNamara, Ph.D., joins emcee Carmen Alvarez and James López, Ph.D., for a discussion about her new book, Ybor City: Crucible of the Latina South. The new season of Florida Conversations begins at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 20. Registration is required.

Sarah McNamara’s book traces the politics of Cuban immigrants and their descendants, the central role of women, and histories of labor organizing in Tampa’s cigar-making community.

“Ybor City: Crucible of the Latina South is the best that Latinx history has to offer—deeply researched and rigorous but with respect toward diasporic peoples and the rich communities they build and evolve within.” – Perla Guerrero in NACLA
