Abstract: Digital video of Jim (James) Haskins memorial service, September 19, 2005, by William Conwill. In 2008, the University of Florida Libraries held an exhibit, "Jim Haskins: The Professor, the Writer, and the Activist". Haskins ( September 19, 1941 - July 6, 2005 ) was a University of Florida English professor and prolific author. Included in the exhibit were all of his 150 books along with notes, awards and personal items from the collections of the George A. Smathers Libraries. Haskins' books covered numerous diverse subjects. Many of his books are non-fiction works for children but he also put African American history and experiences into his novels. The languages he wrote in were also diverse, from black dialect to Italian and Spanish. Haskins was one of the founders of African-American studies at UF and he commuted between New York and Gainesville. Haskins alternated between his roles as a professor, a scholar, a writer, an activist and an inspiration to other young African American students but through it all it was said that he always maintained a dignity and quiet intelligence which was noted and respected by those who knew him.
