It’s meaningful to our target market because of its historical value and inspiration to kids, particularly African American kids. But, best of all, it’s a magnificent book for companies or individuals to give as a gift.

This historic educational coffee table book showcases the rich history, culture, and achievers of Jacksonville's many African American trailblazers, leaders, who have contributed to shaping Jacksonville, Florida, and DUVAL County as a hold, into the world-class city it is today. The pictures and captions are showcased in this book so that when these people are no longer with us, their pictures and these words will still be around for us to see and tell their stories.

Viewers will see people they know, including their family members. That’s only part of the attraction. Among the myriad virtues “DUVAL – Moments in Time” will preserve four decades of Jacksonville’s African American history and achievers. Documentarian Photographer David Williams vision and mission took him to many locations and events for four decades capturing the positive African American experiences.
