Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing Exhibit

The museum's newest permanent exhibit is Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing. an animatronic salute to LaVilla's native sons, James Weldon Johnson and John Rosamond Johnson. Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing captures the excitement of the time through music, projected images, dialogue and theatrical lighting. The voices of educator Dr. Johnetta B. Cole, a Jacksonville native, singer/actor Harry Burney and renowned actor Ossie Davis, set a dramatic tone as you 'witness' the brothers share their history.
