AHA member and Tikkun Olam prizewinner Marvin Dunn (Florida International Univ.) was featured in a Miami Herald article by Bea L. Hines about his notable work in Florida history. The article highlights Dunn’s work educating the public on the history of racist violence in Florida, such as his Teach the Truth tours, which take “high school and college students, teachers and other interested citizens to Rosewood and other Florida sites where Blacks were lynched.” The AHA’s Tikkun Olam prize, given to Dunn in 2023 as the inaugural recipient, is awarded annually to “individuals whose work has promoted literacy in public culture, with the abiding hope that such work will . . . help to repair the world.”
