On Saturday, June 18, 2022 at 11:30am, celebrate Juneteenth and St. Augustine’s civil rights heritage with the LMCC at the Heritage Luncheon at the  Casa Monica Resort and Spa.

Civil rights activist, Mr. J.T. Johnson, will be the featured speaker.  He was one of the protesters that jumped into a whites-only pool at the Monson Motor Lodge in St. Augustine.  In an attempt to force Black swimmers out, the owner of the hotel poured acid into the pool. The protest became a rallying cry to end a filibuster and vote to approve the Civil Rights Bill of 1964.

The program includes a plated lunch. Tables seating eight are available along with individual tickets.

Ticket Cost: $150

Parking at the Casa Monica is reduced to $5 for luncheon guests.

The luncheon is co-sponsored by Wells Fargo and the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center.  In addition to celebrating the activism of the civil rights era, the luncheon will also support the preservation of the museum’s physical location.

It is one of a series of Juneteenth events that serves as a remembrance of the challenges faced by activists and their drive to create a more harmonious and inclusive community that is equitable for all.  A Juneteenth Dedication Ceremony of a section of the Woolworth’s lunch counter display precedes the luncheon.  The event is at the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center.
