Please bring the whole family and join us off-site at the Solomon Calhoun Center (1300 Duval Street) as we take part in the Resilience Family Fest, a multi-organizational celebration of St. Augustine’s Black history and culture. “Resilience Family Fest,” held for the first time, will feature dance and musical performances, food trucks, historical reenactments, pop-up exhibits, arts and crafts activities, and much more. Performances will include Melvin Smith Jazz Ensemble, Nan Nkama Pan-African Drum and Dance Ensemble, St. Augustine High School Jazz Band, and storytellers James Bullock and Charmin Russell of the Ximenez-Fatio House Museum “I Lived Here, As Well” program.
