Tim Gilmore discusses The Klan in Jacksonville, FL – Its Repugnant Rise and Hysterical Collapse

Tim Gilmore, Author/Speaker/Educator

The Coniferous Cafe was packed Tuesday night, June 13th,  with every chair filled, many more people standing, and the crowd actually spilling out the door onto the sidewalk. I love this kind of motivated crowd, sincerely and lovingly united against bigotry and racism, ready to stand up for human rights. There aren’t many words I can use to describe the event other than to repeat the original announcement for the event:

This event was the first in a new Coniferous Cafe series called A People’s History of Jax with FSCJ Professor Tim Gilmore. You can also follow his seven-story series on the Klan in Jax at Jax Psycho Geo, starting here: https://jaxpsychogeo.com/all-over-town/ku-klux-klan-in-jacksonville/

Tim is the author of a wide variety of books and articles. Including but not limited to
* The Devil in the Baptist Church
* In Search of Eartha White, Storehouse for the People
* Central Georgia Schizophrenia
* Stalking Ottis Toole: A Southern Gothic

You can read Tim’s articles here -> https://jaxpsychogeo.com/

Suggested $5 – $10 donation
Complimentary libations.

I would also like to bring your attention to the Jacksonville Progressive Coalition, organized by Wells Todd, and Karen who was present at the event.

Also present was Karen Roumillat of the Stetson Kennedy Foundation.
