JWJ Park’s Docs + Beats VIP Event

Join James Weldon Johnson Park on Friday, February 17, 2023, at The Jessie for Docs + Beats – JWJ Park’s Hip Hop Festival VIP Event.
The event will feature a screening of two locally produced Hip Hop documentaries: “Recollection: How Asamov Began” by Willie Evans Jr.; and “Outside” [wt] a film by Che. “Recollection” discusses the story of how Jacksonville’s legendary underground Hip Hop group Asamov – comprised of Willie Evans Jr. (Niam Jones), DJ Therapy (Paten Locke), Ja-One-Da (Joe Cox), & Basic (Vladimir Decastro) – came to be. “Outside” offers insight into Duval’s current Hip Hop culture and the advocacy within it, making note of the present without excluding the past.
There will be light refreshments, a cash bar, and a live DJ set curated by Dillon. The event is free to attend but there will be limited seating available.
