Spohrer Dodd Sponsoring American Beach Museum Anniversary Event

Spohrer Dodd

Spohrer Dodd is sponsoring the American Beach Museum’s 5th anniversary celebration! From September 5-8, 2019, the American Beach Museum will commemorate five years of sharing the story of Florida’s American Beach.

American Beach was founded in 1935 by Abraham Lincoln Lewis and the Afro-American Life Insurance Company, as a place where African-American individuals could enjoy “recreation and relaxation without humiliation.” To honor the history of the beach, the American Beach Museum was established on September 6, 2014.

This year’s anniversary event includes four full days of seminars, interviews, museum tours, and more! On Saturday, September 7th, U.S. District Court Judge Brian J. Davis will interview Senior U.S. District Court Judge Henry Lee Adams Jr. The “Quest for Justice” educational presentation will include lunch and music, in addition to the conversation between the two justices.

Those who wish to attend any of the week’s festivities can buy tickets to each event individually. Ticket prices range from free admission to $125 for Thursday’s “A.L. Lewis Legacy Awards” ceremony hosted by Danny Glover. The black-tie-optional awards will include a champagne toast and jazz performance, and will honor the work of Lewis’s granddaughter Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole. The American Beach Museum has blocked rooms in the Amelia Island Ritz-Carlton for any attendees who require hotel accommodations.
