Democracy in Florida: A Work in Progress

Democracy in Florida: A Work in Progress Online

When American revolutionaries waged a war for independence, they took a leap of faith that sent ripple effects across generations. They embraced a radical idea of establishing a government that entrusted the power of the nation not in a monarchy, but in its citizens. That great leap sparked questions that continue to impact Floridians: who has the right to vote, what are the freedoms and responsibilities of citizens, and whose voices will be heard? This talk by Dr. Steve Noll is a springboard for discussions about those very questions and how they are reflected in Florida stories spanning over 300 years.

This program is put on as part of Florida Humanities’ Museum on Main Street program. The “Voices & Votes: Democracy in America” exhibit and related programming are brought to you by Florida Humanities and the Smithsonian Institution. We would also like to thank the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership. Local Sarasota support has been provided by Gulf Coast Community Foundation.
