    The History of Jacksonville is racist and it was known as the “Bold New City of the South”.
    On August 27, 1960, an event known as Axe Handle Saturday

    Ax Handle Saturday, also known as the Jacksonville riot of 1960, was a racially motivated attack in Hemming Park in Jacksonville, Florida, on August 27, 1960. A group of about 200 white men used baseball bats and ax handles to attack black people who were in sit-in protests opposing racial segregation.

    I felt incredible as a black person but I was traveling to Jacksonville. We went to the beach we were hung out an event, Come Together Day Reunion. The attendees was about 5000. Great food, great fellowship I highly recommend visiting the city. In lieu of the recent racially
    motivated shooting, Jacksonville is an incredible place to visit.
