Marvin Dunn taught in the Department of Psychology at Florida International University for 34 years. He holds a PhD in psychology from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. He co-authored The Miami Riot of 1980: Crossing the Bounds, with Bruce Porter, and authored Black Miami in the Twentieth Century, and The Beast in Florida: A History of Anti-Black Violence. He has directed three documentary films: Black Seminoles in the Bahamas: The Red Bays Story; Murder on the Suwannee River: The Willie James Howard Story; and Rosewood Uncovered. In A History of Florida: Through Black Eyes (Createspace), Dr. Dunn traces the contribution of African Americans to Florida throughout its history, and how that history has been deliberately distorted, omitted and marginalized.
