A Reflection of Society

Maurice Johnson

Thursday, March 30 at 6 p.m.
Leon County Main Library, 200 West Park Avenue

Join Leon County Government on a journey through the historical origins of hip-hop culture with educator Maurice Johnson.

Exploring the response of hip-hop to socioeconomic and political oppression, the lecture will help attendees gain a better understanding of the artistic expression of hip-hop music and how it can be used as an educational tool.

The Leon County Library Lecture Series is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

Leon County

Since 2017, Leon County Government has implemented more than 500 citizen ideas to improve programs and services for Leon County residents.  Citizens have submitted bright ideas like:

  • Adding a button to translate the County’s Emergency Information Portal website to keep citizens of any language proficiency informed during a disaster.

  • Creating a “Help My Pet” sticker to assist first responders in contacting a pet caretaker when the owner cannot be reached.

  • Declaring Florida Emancipation Day as a County holiday.

  • As a pilot program, installing three electric vehicle charging stations at the Main Library and Eastside Branch Library.

  • Transferring surplus Leon County EMS ambulances to Lively Technical Center to be used for training in the Diesel Truck Maintenance Program.

All of these suggestions came from citizens like you and are now implemented in Leon County!

Join Leon County in co-creating our one-of-a-kind community by sending your own bright ideas.
