Today’s episode features the A. Quinn Jones Museum and Cultural Center housed in the former Jones Family home at 1013 NW 7th Avenue in Gainesville. It serves as a tribute to one of the most influential educators in the history of Alachua County and showcases a permanent exhibit on “Prof” Jones. It also focuses on the people and places of the historic Fifth Avenue/Pleasant Street neighborhood and contains a collection of oral histories centering on the African-American experience in Gainesville along with a collection of rotating exhibits throughout the year.
Coordinator Carol Richardson shares information on the Museum and Cultural Center founded in 2009 as the result of a partnership between the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), the City of Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs, and and the Florida African American Heritage Preservation Network.
