Dr. Ted Thornhill will argue that over the past several decades color-blind ideology, neoliberalism, and the residue of Jim Crow have functioned as efficient custodians of an inequitable status quo in Collier County and Southwest Florida more broadly. Drawing on a wide range of evidence from empirical research and historical scholarship to government data and journalistic accounts, Thornhill will stress the importance of thinking more critically and acting more intentionally about durable race and class inequities in Collier County. He will conclude by offering practical suggestions for how residents (including seasonal residents), schools, government agencies, businesses, and non-profit organizations can contribute to a racially and socially equitable Southwest Florida.
