Jacksonville will kick off Black History Month on February 1 with an event honoring African-American golfers at the Ritz Theater in Lavilla.
Sports and Entertainment head Dave Herrell noted in an internal email that his department is “working with the World Golf Hall of Fame, SMG and JAXSPORTS on a collaborative Black History Month event at the Ritz Theatre & Museum.”
The tentative start time for the “program and light luncheon” is 11 a.m.
The Ritz will host a display of African-American Hall of Fame golfers.
The speaker lineup is still being firmed up; a request is in for Mayor Lenny Curry to offer remarks.
