The Brannon Center, 105 South Riverside Drive, New Smyrna Beach, Florida, 32168, United States.

The Mary S. Harrell Black Heritage Museum is proud to kick off the 30th Annual Black Heritage Festival weekend 2022, with a special performance of the George Stevens Jr, one-man-show, THURGOOD,  an exciting, multi-media experience produced by, and starring Volusia's own Larry Murphy. Join us at 6 P.M. for wine and craft beer social hour, with delicious skewers at the beautiful, waterfront Brannon Center. Theatrical seating and the artful design of the Brannon makes every seat in the house fantastic for viewing. This will be a special night, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of an extraordinary American. 

Thurgood Marshall was born in 1908 in Maryland, and was the first African American appointed to the United States Supreme Court. After being rejected by the University of Maryland College of Law on the basis of race, Marshall graduated valedictorian of his Law class at Howard University in 1933. His intellect, determination and fortitude stand today as a beacon of hope for dreamers and visionaries everywhere. Thus, Justice Marshall's life story is fitting to launch not only the 30th Annual Black Heritage Festival, but the first event of The Bridge Builders Series, a collaboration between the Mary S. Harrell Black Heritage Museum, and The Reel Film Foundation, producer of New Smyrna's International Film Festival, The Reel Deal Film Festival.  The evening will be hosted by Southern Stone Communication's News Director, the one and only Trei Johnson, with perhaps a surprise guest or two. This evening is not to be missed!  Advance ticket sales until January 29 only - no tickets at the door!

The Mary S. Harrell Black Heritage Museum is one of a few of its kind in the state of Florida. It houses a collection of photographs, memorabilia, and artifacts that are displayed to educate citizens and students about the history and race relations in small-town Florida over the course of the 20th century. The Museum is located at the corner of North Duss and Mary Streets, at 314 N. Duss Street, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168, please call or stop in (386)478-1934. Memberships and group visits are available. Your support enables our signature annual event, Black Heritage Weekend, and scholarships to graduating NSBHS seniors, and local history preservation. The Reel Film Foundation is a local non profit that brought the first multi-genre, international film festival to NSB in 2021, the Reel Deal Film Festival. Your support enables the cultural exchange afforded by exhibiting three days of films each fall, the mentoring of students exploring communications careers, scholarship to local college students, and finishing funds to local filmmakers.
