JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Black History Calendar and 15 years of First Coast News' participation.

FCN's very own Ken Amaro will emcee the unveiling ceremony Thursday at the Jacksonville Public Library located at 303 N. Laura Street.

The year 2014 not only will mark the Silver Anniversary (25 years) of the calendar's production, but the theme, "Civil Rights in America," will honor the Golden Anniversary (50 years) of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

There will be 40,000 Black History calendars distributed to schools, churches, libraries, businesses, various organizations and homes throughout Jacksonville and selected cities across the nation.

The calendar documents the achievements of Jacksonville's African American community.

The ceremony begins at 4 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
