WISE: A STATE BUILT ON SLAVERY WEST FLORIDA - THE SEQUEL
Wisdom In Senior Education (W.I.S.E.) is a program offered by the Daytona State College Foundation to promote and share the academic college resources with our senior community, providing learning opportunities in an enjoyable format. When England won Florida from Spain there were two distinct areas - West Florida and East Florida. So different in ideology and lifestyle that at one point England considered them to be the 14th and 15th original colonies of America. Life, culture and attitudes toward slavery were so different in each region that it was hard to imagine them part of the same state. The west under Spanish influence embraced the Americans, while the East, ruled by the English, cruelly enslaved them. Presenter: Dr. Nancy Duke, Professor, Daytona State College. Note: Speakers, dates and times are subject to change. Free to WISE members.
