The Emerson Center to introduce the “Reconstruction” Free Video & Discussion Seminar

Have you wondered why we are, after all these years since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, still dealing with racial justice issues? Wondering why Black Lives Matter came into existence and became the center of media attention in the spring of 2020? Wondering what “systemic racism” is and whether it exists at all? Wondering if police brutality towards Blacks in our country is real and how it started? Wondering why there is such income and health gaps between Whites and Blacks in our country? Wonder why you’ve read or heard in the news lately comparing the election of 2020 to the election of 1876?

The Emerson Center in collaboration with the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Vero Beach Coalition for Racial Justice presents “Reconstruction”: The Origins of Our World Today, the free video and discussion seminar. The “Reconstruction” Seminar is a series of four sessions held each Saturday (Feb. 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th) at 10:00AM in February. Social distance seating limited to first 100 to register in our 850+ seat auditorium. Please register for FREE by calling (772)778-5880 (Monday thru Friday from 9:00AM to 1:00PM) or by e-mailing: and remember to include the number in your party.

Join us at the Emerson Center this February 2021 for a stimulating and informative series of videos and group discussions on The Reconstruction Era (1865-1876) and how the events in that period of our history created many of the problems our America is grappling with now. Many of the answers go directly back to what happened during the period of Reconstruction after the Civil War…and we are living with the consequences of that period 150 years later.
