Paul Ortiz on Emancipation Betrayed

On January 9th, Paul Ortiz, UCSC Associate Professor of Community Studies, discussed his latest book, Emancipation Betrayed The Hidden History of Black Organizing and White Violence in Florida from Reconstruction to the Bloody Election of 1920 at the Louden Nelson Center in downtown Santa Cruz.

The audio has been recorded in two parts. The first part is the presentation and the second part is Question and Answer. The questions were inaudible, so I placed 2 seconds of silent audio in place of the questions.
