Florida School District Cancels Professor's Civil Rights Lecture Citing Concerns Over Critical Race Theory
"The victims of this censorship are history and the truth. The end game is they're going to make teaching civil rights into critical race theory, and it's not," Flagler College History Professor, J. Michael Butler, said.

Concerns over the Critical Race Theory (CRT) led to the cancellation of a history professor's civil rights history seminar in Florida.
Flagler College professor J. Michael Butler scheduled a workshop called "The Long Civil Rights Movement," which argues that the civil rights movement existed long before and post-dated Martin Luther King, Jr. by decades. The seminar, prepared for the Osceola School District teachers, was canceled less than 24 hours of its scheduling due to state Senate committee legislation requested by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
