The Jessie | Jacksonville, FL

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” 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.

JWJ’s 2nd Annual Hip Hop Festival is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
