Racism

Theatre Conspiracy is currently running productions of Lorraine Hansberry’s classic drama, “A Raisin in the Sun,” at the Alliance of the Arts in Fort Myers.  The story and its themes tackle hard truths about racism, segregation, and socioeconomic mobility through the story of a black family’s experience moving into a prosperous white neighborhood in 1950s Chicago.  

A Florida middle school teacher accused of promoting racist views has resigned.

The educator first came under fire after it was revealed she was the host of a white nationalist podcast.

On her show called “Unapologetic,” social studies teacher Dayanna Volitich, argued that some races are smarter than others and suggested that Muslims be exterminated to prevent terrorism.

The white nationalist group League of the South was met with furious counter-demonstrators in Tallahassee on Saturday (1/27). Around 200 officers from every law enforcement agency in town helped keep the two groups apart in front of the Historic Florida Capitol.
