Florenz Maxwell: Bermuda's theatre boycott heroine

From Nine To Noon, 10:06 am on 17 October 2017

Florenz Maxwell is a Bermudian author and activist who was part of the underground group that successfully ended segregation through a series of theatre boycotts in 1959. She's just published a young adult novel called Girlcott, a coming-of-age story about a young girl who learns about segregation and racism through the actions of the Progressive Group. Florenz talks to Kathryn Ryan about her own experiences of inequality from growing up in Bermuda, and where the country currently stands in terms of race relations.
