2705 SW 3rd St. Miami, Fl, 33135https://moadmdc.org/programs-events/connecting-florida-sawgrass-reflections-with-cesar-becerra
There are many stories about the Everglades. Some are included in the standard histories. Others, often embellished, become part of our folklore. Still others become lost in the millions of acres of sawgrass. Historian Cesar Becerra strives to tell them all. So passionate that the Miami Herald named him an Everglades Evangelist, Becerra has paddled, hiked, swamp tromped, buggied, airboated, and flown over most of those acres. But his deepest dive has been collecting, researching, and contributing to the mountain of academia that, ironically, exists for a place that looks at times like a simple field of grass.
Kislak curators Dr. Carol Damian and Arthur Dunkelman join Becerra for a lively discussion about the River of Grass and its historical and ongoing effects on the lives of everyone in the state of Florida.
