In collaboration with a newly developing nonprofit, Freedom to Teach and Learn, and the JaxbyJax Literary Arts Festival, we are proud to announce our upcoming event, #TruthBeTold!  

We're planning an event in anticipation of and in accordance with the African American Policy Forum's Day of Action.


#TruthBeTold is planned for Saturday, April 29, at the Cork Arts District located at 2689 Rosselle Street, Jacksonville, Florida, 32204. A Facebook event has been created and can be found here:


Our event includes: 

  • 2-3:30: Cork Arts Workshop: A panel round-table discussion with community leaders which include diverse perspectives about attacks on diversity

  • Space for kids to color, read, and explore simultaneously, especially diverse texts for young readers

  • Break and transition

  • 4-5: Small groups: Curated conversations on activism next steps to begin within our community 

  • 5-6:30: Reception and Gallery: A celebration of diversity, we will explore and interact with a collage of testimonials, listen to local poets, and enjoy music

The testimonials will be anonymous and will be used in our "Wall of Words" art collage installation that we will reveal during the event reception in the gallery space.
