I believe I saw some of this as an exhibit at the MOSH a couple years ago.
And though I long to embrace, I will not replace my priorities: humour, opinion, a sense of compassion, creativity and a distaste for fashion.

Interesting indeed.  Its just unfortunate we have to see what LaVilla was in a museum.  Imagine what St. Augustine would be like today if all they had was a museum showing what the historic district used to look like.

I highly recommend this museum to visit atleast once. The James Weldon Johnson (with his brother Rosamond) display was excellent. Many of the displays make you feel as if you literally took a trip back in the 50's, such as the Woolworth's soda fountain display.

No lines, no waiting, no one knows about the museum. More people pass through City Hall looking at the history on the walls than pass through the Lavilla museum. A travesty, it is a great place!

Everyone should go at least once... pretty decent exhibit.
