On October 22, 2013, a symposium of events celebrated the donation of Stetson Kennedy’s papers to the University of Florida. At 6:00 p.m., a panel event featuring Dr. Marvin Dunn, Lucy Anne Hurston, and Dr. Peggy Bulger discussed the legacy of his legendary activism in Florida today. The panel was moderated by Ben Brotelmarke and included blues music from Willie Green and an introduction from UF First Lady Chris Machen.

 

The Gainesville Sun‘s coverage of the Stetson Foundation’s donation also featured a video of Willie Green playing the blues and a photo gallery of the evening’s events.
