Moderated by Neki Mohan, an adjunct professor at Barry University who served as a broadcast journalist at WPLG for 16 years, this special event will explore the gap between education and employment opportunities in the arts and creative industries and offer insights into how we can begin to close that gap for communities of color in South Florida.

Panelist Portia Dunkley is co-founder and executive director of the New Canon Chamber Collective, a non-profit chamber music ensemble offering performance opportunities for Black and Latinx musicians.

The yearlong Arts For Action: Black Voices initiative explores how the arts and artists can be a force for change in addressing critical issues of social justice and racial inequality.

Island City Stage, creating quality professional theatrical experiences focused on the LGBT+ community for a universal audience, will host their very own Behind the Red Curtain community forum entitled “Law Enforcement and the LGBT+ Community – Where are we today?” on Tuesday, September 14, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at its theatre (2304 N. Dixie Highway in Wilton Manors). This presentation coincides with the kickoff of Island City Stage’s 10th anniversary 2021-22 Season with The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson this October. This true-story scandalous period drama chronicling the 1914 Long Beach sex scandal launched the theatre company’s award-winning decade-long run.

This free, public event will review the advancements of South Florida law enforcement in how they interact with the LGBT+ community and promote diversity and inclusion, internally. Guest panelists will include Lieutenant Paul Auerbach of Broward Sheriff’s Office, Assistant Chief of Police Darren Brodsky of Wilton Manors Police Department, Captain Michael Dodson of Fort Lauderdale Police Department, FAU Professor Emeritus and author Fred Fejes, PhD. and Trans Advocate Kat Rio. This forum is supported by Equality Florida and the GLBX Council of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce.

The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson runs from October 1 – 31, 2021. Viewers will become engaged in this true story of two actors who hired themselves out to the Long Beach Police Department in 1914 to entrap “social vagrants” in public restrooms. Thirty-one men were arrested, and the ensuing scandal led to an ordinance against “oral sodomy” in California.

Behind the Red Curtain is a free public forum. Guests may attend in-person or participate virtually. Registration is required by visiting islandcitystage.org.

Island City Stage’s 10th anniversary 2021-22 season will also feature Armature by Andrew Kramer from January 27 – February 27, 2022; Suddenly, Last Summer by Tennessee Williams from March 17 – April 17, 2022; The Mystery of Irma Vep by Charles Ludlam from June 9 – July 10, 2022; and One In Two by Donja R.

Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom session

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Florida historian Cesar A. Becerra on the next August 12 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at https://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorBecerra.

Cesar A. Becerra is the author of Orange Blossom 2.0, a soon-to-be-released novel debuting in conjunction with the City of Miami’s 125th anniversary. Orange Blossom 2.0 is based on Becerra’s decades of research that tells the true story of the founding of Miami and the remarkable contributions of landowner, developer and savvy businesswoman Mary Brickell who seems to have been largely overlooked and overshadowed in the pages of our past. The book is available for purchase at www.sofloweird.com/product-page/orange-blossom-2-0

A South Florida historian who’s taken part in chronicling and sharing the stories of the region for more than two decades, Becerra is the author of half a dozen books ranging from hiking the Appalachian Trail to the logging history of the Big Cypress Preserve. Becerra is an avid explorer who drove through all 50 states in a one-year road trip to rediscover America for The Travel Channel. He has also hiked the 2,160-mile Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia, in 388 days through 14 states and 4 seasons. Becerra is former publisher of The Everglade Magazine, an award winning publication printed during Everglades National Park’s 50th anniversary. He has walked, hiked, slogged, canoed, kayaked, airboated and swamp buggied all across the Everglades. In 1997, The Miami Herald named him an “Everglades Evangelist.” Cesar’s love for the past and sense of adventure is where his two worlds unite. He has a penchant for hidden history and knows no boundaries or distances when it comes to searching for it.

Becerra joins previous novelists Dr. Joe Knetsch and Y.M. Masson, architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online at HistoryFortLauderdaleTickets.

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring Dr. Joe Knetsch 7/8/21

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring Dr. Joe Knetsch
Thursday, 07/08/2021-, 12:00 pm-01:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom session

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Florida historian Dr. Joe Knetsch on the next July 8 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorKnetsch.

Knetsch is the co-author with Pamela Gibson of the recently released Florida in World War I (Arcadia Publishing/The History Press, ISBN: 978-1467148290), a historical deep dive into the role a sparsely populated and largely rural Florida played as America plunged into World War I. The book delves into the state’s sacrifices and contributions with a look at its naval accomplishments – the proud USS Florida, too often mentioned as a mere adjunct to the Atlantic Fleet, receives a just accounting, as does the utterly devastating loss of the USS Tampa, the highest death toll the navy suffered in the war. Sunshine State foresters served critical roles abroad, and local libraries became essential hubs for promoting rationing and reporting news from overseas. Floridian aid workers and soldiers training for departure were stricken with the Spanish flu, a pandemic that shook the globe with force equal to the war itself.

Dr. Joe Knetsch is the author of more than 200 articles and 12 books concerning Florida history. This is his sixth book for Arcadia/The History Press and covers an area in which he has a strong interest. He has been a constant reviewer of military history books for the Journal of America’s Military Past and other professional journals. He holds a doctorate from Florida State University and, for 28 years, was the historian for the Division of State Lands, Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Since his retirement, he has continued to research and publish history. He lives in Tallahassee with his wife, Linda, and their five cats. Knetsch’s works are available through amazon.com and www.arcadiapublishing.com.

Knetsch joins novelist Y.M. Masson, architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online at HistoryFortLauderdaleTickets.

Make Music Miami, the annual celebration of music on the summer solstice, returns this year on Monday, June 21 with dozens of free, virtual and in-person outdoor concerts, music lessons, jam sessions and other exciting music-making events, spotlighting music’s power to connect, comfort, unite and uplift. Miami is among the 90+ U.S. cities hosting major celebrations, in what has become a worldwide phenomenon observed by hundreds of millions of people in over 1,000+ cities in 120 countries. Safety protocols will be in place following local requirements, including mask-wearing, social distancing and limited capacities and group sizes.
Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Miami celebrates and promotes the natural music maker in all of us, regardless of ability. Reimagining their cities and towns as stages, every kind of musician – from bucket drummers and opera singers to hip-hop artists and marching bands – pours onto streets, parks, plazas, porches, rooftops, gardens, beaches and other public spaces to celebrate, create and share their music with friends, neighbors and strangers. Due to the pandemic, last year’s celebration was largely virtual, but many in-person events will return in 2021.

For more detailed information, visit makemusicmiami.org. Finalized programming will be posted here the week of the event.

MIAMI, Fl., June 2021 — Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the U.S. is right around the corner. Historically designated on June 19th, it’s a day for ALL of us to celebrate. For MCCJ, the non-profit organization that advocates for diversity and equality, it’s a day to reflect in dialogue and plan for a better future. As part of their “Can We Talk? Really, Can We Talk?” series, MCCJ will present “Bulldozing Barriers: Reflections of Juneteenth & Diversity in Miami” — an effort to encourage continuous self-development and respect not just for the black community, but for all cultures.

“We invite people of all races, religions and cultures to join us in conversation as we acknowledge a period in history that should have shaped and influenced our society, but due to ongoing discord and violence against people of color and religious backgrounds over this past year, it’s become clear that we are regressing rather than progressing,” says MCCJ’s Executive Director, Matthew Anderson. He will be moderating a frank discussion about racial fears and how it affects our progress for a more inclusive community. Following the panel discussion, people are invited to enjoy the “One Way” exhibit at the Hampton Art Lovers, a non-profit art gallery that advocates for black art, and is open to all who love art in all its forms.

Panelists Include:
– Marilyn Holifield, Partner, Holland & Knight and MCCJ Silver Medallion winner
– Saif Ishoof, Vice President for Engagement FIU and MCCJ Silver Medallion winner
– Matthew Beatty, COO Carrie Meek Foundation
– Pamela Fuertes, Executive Director, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program at Miami Dade College
– Deborah Koch, Executive Director at American Red Cross of Greater Miami
– Kathryn Mikesell, Founder, Fountainhead Residency
– Esther Park, Vice President of Programming Oolite Arts
– Matt Anderson, Executive Director, MCCJ (Moderator)

MASK
PROTOCOL:
The panelists will hold this conversation outdoors under a big tent. In an abundance of caution, we urge thoughtful consideration when it comes to wearing a mask and maintaining six feet of separation.

ABOUT MCCJ:

Today, it goes beyond its original intent by creating a haven for dialog, training inclusive leaders and promoting understanding for all faiths, races and cultures through education, advocacy and conflict resolution. It hosts the oldest continuous interfaith clergy dialog in the United States and presents prejudice reducing programs in local high schools, among other activities.

Website
Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom session

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Broward County novelist Y.M. Masson on the next June 10 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorMasson.

Masson is the author of When Paris Was Dark (ISBN 978-1-946886-09-5), a story of a young boy’s fear, courage, despair and determination during the World War II German occupation of France. The tale mirrors Masson’ own experiences during this turbulent time. It won third place in the Royal Palm Literary Awards from the Florida Writers Association 2018 competition.

As a young boy Y. M. Masson (Yves) struggled through four years of hardship under German occupation of Paris until he was liberated by the American Third Army. Twenty years later, after having served in the French army in North Africa during the French-Algerian war, he left France for New York City and became a United States citizen in the early seventies. After working as a marketing executive in corporate America, and then running his own consulting business, Masson turned to the arts. He is an accomplished portrait artist, but loves to share his life experiences with his readers. He knows what war does to people and especially to children. His ability to describe their daily fears, their devastating hunger, and the despair of deprivation draws his audience into their conflict.

Masson’s other novels include The War Inside His Mind (ISBN: 978-1-946886-13-2) and Never Give Up (ISBN 978-1-946886-14-9). All works are available at his website at www.ymmassonauthor.com.

Masson joins architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with South Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.

Join us for a meet and greet with author Sekou Cooke as he celebrates the launch of his new book Hip-Hop Architecture. Cooke will read excerpts from the book and will answer questions along side his contributors such as the Museum of Graffiti’s own Carlos Mare. Books will be available signing by both Cooke and Mare.

Hip-Hop Architecture outlines a powerful new manifesto-the voice of the underrepresented, marginalized, and voiceless within the discipline. Exploring the production of spaces, buildings, and urban environments that embody the creative energies in hip-hop, it is a newly expanding design philosophy which sees architecture as a distinct part of hip-hop’s cultural expression, and which uses hip-hop as a lens through which to provoke new architectural ideas.

Examining the present and the future of Hip-Hop Architecture, the book also explores its historical antecedents and its theory, placing it in a wider context both within architecture and within Black and African American movements. Throughout, the work is illustrated with inspirational case studies of architectural projects and creative practices, and interspersed with interludes and interviews with key architects, designers, and academics in the field. This is a vital and provocative work that will appeal to architects, designers, students, theorists, and anyone interested in a fresh view of architecture, design, race and culture.

All pod tiers are first come, first serve; there will also be a limited quantity of rentable chairs available, first-come, first-serve.

On both days, attendees can bring their food, drinks, and portable chairs to set up in their designated area where they will have a view of the live performance on stage and the large side screens.

While maintaining an architectural studio in South Beach for 24 years prior to moving to Fort Lauderdale about six years ago, Marcus continued to take photographs of the south Florida architectural environment. His practice currently specializes in historic preservation consulting. A native of Philadelphia, Marcus graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Temple University and a Master of Architecture degree from Carnegie Mellon University.

Marcus joins historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with South Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring John Bailey 4/8/21

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring John Bailey on April 8
Thursday, 04/08/2021-, 12:00 pm-01:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature writer/historian John Bailey on the next April 8 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorBailey.

Bailey is author of A New River Runs Through It, an exciting, comprehensive story of a river and the city that grew up along its banks. Beginning with the legend of how the river acquired its name, this narrative brings to life the story of the rugged men and women who settled along it and built the city of Fort Lauderdale into a world class international business and financial center. It ends with the latest events: the recent expansion of rail commuter service, the city’s management of the Covid-19 pandemic, and a look forward to our future. The book is available on Amazon and in signed editions at History Fort Lauderdale’s Museum Shop.

In 1946, at the age of nine, John Bailey arrived at the New River with his parents. He attended several of the area’s different schools – West Side, Davie, Naval Air, Central, and Fort Lauderdale High School. Through his various local teachers, Bailey developed an abiding interest in his home town. Many of his personal experiences of growing-up and living along the River are sprinkled throughout this book. His previous best selling history books include Sentinel of the Jersey Cape, The Story of the Cape May Lighthouse, Cape Island, The Jewel of the Jersey Shore and Juet’s Journal, Henry Hudson’s Explorations on the Half Moon.

Bailey joins Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with South Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.

The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center will present Through the White Door, a documentary photo project by photojournalist Smiley Pool that portrays the interconnected human experience of families affected by HIV/AIDS, at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale (2414 East Sunrise Blvd.) from April 8 – 30. The exhibition, consisting of 40 poignant images from South Africa, Romania, North Carolina, Texas and beyond, depicts the life struggles and triumphs of children and families affected by HIV/AIDS captured by Pool from his inspirational book of the same name.

The Through the White Door photography project by Pool spans over two decades following a remarkable group of people who faced the HIV/AIDS crisis head-on and saved a generation of children. The project began with two newspaper stories at the Houston Chronicle in the 1990s with the rest of the work completed on his vacation time for the 20 years that followed — around his staff photographer positions at the Chronicle and The Dallas Morning News. Over the years he continued to follow one of the first children in the world on a drug trial for highly active antiretroviral therapy until adulthood, and documented the formation and rise of the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) from the organization’s inception in Texas to what it is today – the largest provider of care and treatment for HIV positive children in the world.

The project culminated with an oversized hardcover book with 212 pages of his photography. Text for the book was written by Jessica Johns Pool, his spouse, who is a writer specializing in health care. Together, TTWD is their way of sharing the stories of the extraordinary and inspirational people they have met along the way.

The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center’s presentation of the Through the White Door exhibit is sponsored by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale and supported by the Broward County Cultural Council and Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants.

The Launch Event is reserved for sponsors, their guests and supporters and will provide an intimate and real-life opportunity to network.

On Wednesday, March 31, from 3-5 p.m. is the Girls Rule – Ignite Your Super Power Main Event that will connect hundreds of high school girls with powerful women. Students who might not have the opportunity to be influenced and mentored by strong women role models, will engage with inspiring and exciting keynote speakers, attend breakout sessions led by experienced women leaders paired with young female JA Alumni and receive a swag bag.

The event keynote speaker is Ari Chambers, a multi-media journalist, sports host, and social media manager based in New York City. Ari works for highlightHER and has grown its followers to over 70000 and is considered the fastest growing women’s sports platform. Her message: “Women’s Potential is Limitless”.

“We are honored to serve as the title sponsor of Junior Achievement Girls Rule,” said Mo Corker, Comerica Bank Florida External Affairs Market Manager. “Historically, women have played a vital role in our country’s economic recovery and growth, which is why it is important that we invest in girls’ and women’s empowerment. Our bank is committed to equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the tools and money skills needed to navigate the increasingly complex financial landscape. Partnering with JA on this initiative, creates a path to economic freedom for girls who traditionally would not have access to these resources.”

The event will feature a socially-distanced drive-in and women’s empowerment presentation all in one, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Oasis parking lot in Hollywood, Florida.

All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit United Way of Broward County as they tackle the most complex, critical challenges and create long-lasting positive change in our community.

Dominique Dawes, three-time Olympic gymnast, Olympic gold medalist, a member of the gold-medal-winning “Magnificent Seven” team, and the first Black gymnast to qualify for the Olympic games, will serve as the keynote speaker. She has served as the national spokesperson for the “Girl Power” campaign, which was a youth empowering initiative run by the Clinton administration. She focuses on issues that young people and women face today, such as developing positive self-esteem, incorporating fitness/wellness as part of a healthy lifestyle, and empowering girls to envision their dreams and ultimately reaching their full potential.

The outdoor “Magnolia After Dark ― Engines Off, Party On!” will be an in-person girls’ night out drive-in, with gates opening at 6:30 p.m. and programming taking place 7:30–10 p.m. on a stage.

Cathy Donnelly, director of Community Relations for the Castle Group, will be honored as the Woman of Inspiration. Jamie Hagar, employee health and benefits consultant for Marsh & McLennan Agency (MMA), will be honored as the Woman of Promise.

Event co-chairs are Traci Miller of Miller Construction Company, and Nicole Villarroel of Olive & Judd, P.A. Rock With U will emcee the event.

Raffle items will include a weekend in Broward County with hotel stays and dining (one entry for $25 or five entries for $100), and a basket of fun excursions (one entry for $100).

“‘Magnolia After Dark ― Engines Off, Party On!’ is certain to be a spectacular, memorable event celebrating the 10th anniversary of Magnolia,” said Miller. “A safe, socially-distanced girls’ night out, it will be incredibly entertaining and feature speakers, a mesmerizing light show, optional food, and much more.”

“This year’s Magnolia event is truly special because amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we have created a unique, exciting evening for all ages to enjoy, safely,” said Villarroel. “We are pleased to have event proceeds benefitting those who have been impacted this past year due to the pandemic and those who were in dire need before COVID-19.”

“We at United Way of Broward County’s Women United are thrilled to have Dominique Dawes speak in-person at this 10th Annual Magnolia event,” said Albritton. “From Olympic gold medalist to Broadway performer, to TV analyst, to president of the Women’s Sports Foundation, Ms. Dawes continues on a path to inspire, motivate and lead, something that our women value and implement into their daily lives.”

As the duo secures local investment in a feature film production and convinces locals they can become stars, the stage is set for a stranger-than-fiction tale of Hollywood dreams, deceit and delusions.

The discussion and Q&A will feature Director and Producer Martha Shane.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will celebrate Women’s History Month and World Water Month with “Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” a visual narrative by award-winning artist Lisette Morales. The exhibit will open on Monday, March 8, International Women’s Day, with a special livestream virtual reception via YouTube where attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q & A with Morales, at 4 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through May 28 in the New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue in Downtown Fort Lauderdale) and available digitally via History Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel.

“Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” is a project created entirely in 2020 and 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This exhibition at History Fort Lauderdale begins with a series of images highlighting Miccosukee Grandmother and Everglades conservationist Betty Osceola, Panther Clan, and her work promoting respect and awareness for our planet by organizing Indigenous prayer walks through the Everglades. It also highlights a collection of portraits of women who work or live in Immokalee and whose strength and perseverance are admirable and worthy.

Lisette Morales is a Nicaraguan-born photojournalist and interdisciplinary artist based in Florida. Her camera has been her tool for activism since the early ‘90s when she traveled through war-torn areas of Central America, documenting the disruption from military conflicts. After surviving domestic violence in her own life, Morales turned to painting and illustration as a mode of catharsis and self-expression. Her work echoes the feminist worldview that she now embodies and has been featured in numerous publications. In recent years, Morales has returned to photography as her media of choice. Morales was an official delegate to the United Nations Women 2018 Commission on the Status of Women. She is a member of the Artful Activist, Zuma Press, The Authority Collective, ArtAid Naples and Colectivo Liminal.

“Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” is one of several stories that History Fort Lauderdale is proud to offer during Women’s History Month. In addition to this exhibit, History Fort Lauderdale and The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale will also present “Women Trailblazers: Champions of Change – Broward County,” another photography exhibition, March 4 -31. This exhibit, to be displayed at The Galleria (2414 East Sunrise Blvd), will showcase six prominent women of today who are proponents of change along with historical female predecessors who helped to pave the way for our community. A ticketed exhibition preview and recognition ceremony honoring these women of today and benefiting History Fort Lauderdale will take place on Wednesday, March 3, at 5:30 p.m., at The Galleria. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/HFLWomenTrailblazers.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.

Join Futura, Lee Quiñones, and PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans in a digital talk as they share stories and insights on New York’s art world, past and present. To commemorate Futura’s latest book “Futura-isms,” published by Princeton University Press in association with No More Rulers, Futura speaks with one of his most respected peers and longtime friend Lee Quiñones on growing up in New York’s seminal art movement of the 1980s. The graffiti icons and legendary artists reflect on their longstanding friendship and their processes in their street and studio practice. Artists who have both pioneered cross-disciplinary practices in their own way, Lee Quiñones and Futura reflect on their own evolving identities as artists, and what it means to be a cross-boundary creator today.

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Launches with Donn Colee, Jr. 2/11/21

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Launches with Donn Colee, Jr.
Thursday, 02/11/2021-, 12:00 pm-01:00 pm
RSVP / Register
Cost: Free

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will launch the first segment of its “Meet the Author,” interactive Zoom series with Palm Beach County-based Donn R. Colee, Jr. author of Legends & Lore of Fort Lauderdale’s New River (Arcadia Publishing/The History Press), on February 11 at noon. The series, featuring local writers of all genres, will continue on the second Thursday of each month.

Colee Jr. is a seventh-generation Floridian and a direct descendent of George Colee, who immigrated to the St. Augustine area from England in 1821. Donn grew up in Orlando but frequently visited relatives in the ancient city, where his curiosity was piqued by stories about a massacre of long-ago family members at Fort Lauderdale’s New River. While the “Colee Massacre” story was later debunked, it refused to die. His Legends & Lore of Fort Lauderdale’s New River began as an attempt to finally resolve the last vestiges of that myth, but the power of New River quickly propelled the book to become a history of the river, its fascinating people, and the transformation of its wilderness into a metropolis. This is his second book. His first, Towers in the Sand, is the history of radio and television stations in Florida and the people who brought them to life. His family has been engaged in Florida broadcasting for three generations. Colee is a member of the Florida Historical Society, History Fort Lauderdale, St. Augustine Historical Society and Historical Society of Palm Beach County. He is a former commissioner of the Florida Inland Navigation District, the state agency responsible for maintenance and improvements of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway from Fernandina Beach to Key Biscayne. It was built by a company that was cofounded in 1881 by his great-great-great-grandfather, who became its civil engineer. Donn and his wife, Martha, reside in Palm Beach Gardens.

Upcoming authors will be announced. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthor .

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with
docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.

About Sweet Caroline Bar

Sweet Caroline Karaoke Bar was opened in 2018 with one purpose in mind – to bring people together through singing, dancing, laughing, and drinking! Since then, that’s exactly what we’ve accomplished.

Our American-style karaoke bar has hosted thousands of singers from locals and tourists, amateurs and professionals, solos and duets. Our stage and spotlight can make even the shyest singer look and feel like a rock-star. With two big screen tv’s for the lyrics, and DJs that know how to get the party going, the entire crowd and even our staff are part of each and every song.

We are proud to have opened a bar for the community to gather and have fun in a unique and exciting way. Whether you like classic rock or hip-hop, reggaeton or salsa, 70’s, 80’s, or 90’s music, we’re waiting for you to come sing and have fun at Sweet Caroline Karaoke Bar!
