In 2009, when we began planning for the first Jacksonville African American Cultural Arts Festival, our mission was to continue a tradition that started some 20 years earlier with the goal being to reach out to the Black community through music art and education.
But that was 2009
Much has changed since 2009, the world is a different place.
So we decided it was time to restate our purpose while staying with the mission,
Culture is about so much more than race, or where we come from. Culture is an understanding and accepance of who we are as a people. But it is alson about the world we live ing health, our relationships, work and more, all play a larger part in our becoming Culturally Aware than we realized.
Will we ever sponsor another Festival? We would love to, money and time make it a challenge
.....but we would never say never.
