The Peace and Justice institute is happy to announce that the Spring/Summer 2021 edition of the Peace and Justice Institute’s JOURNAL is out, with articles covering a variety of topics.
In this issue, you will read about recent efforts to memorialize the Ocoee Massacre and enter a place of healing; the story of a pastor who learns unconditional love for himself and from God as a gay man; a tribute to College President Sandy Shugart, and a conversation with our very own director of downtown community engagement for UCF Downtown and Valencia College Downtown Elizabeth Thompson, who discusses how she and her family’s efforts to preserve African American history in the Orlando Community led her to her current role.
We are highlighting the following articles, but rest assured, the entire issue is worth immersing yourself in:
- A Conversation with Elizabeth Thompson
- Courage, Truth and Love, A Community Faces the Past and Begins to Heal Together
