The Tributary

A federal judge will hear oral arguments this week in a lawsuit challenging the new districts for Jacksonville City Council and Duval County School Board. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Jacksonville, claims that the new maps unconstitutionally pack four City Council districts and two School Board districts with Black voters, diminishing their influence in adjacent districts.

Guest: Jack Genberg, senior voting rights staff attorney, Southern Poverty Law Center.

Van Gogh show

"Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience" is a sensory extravaganza that takes more than 300 of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings from their two-dimensional form and transforms them into a unique three-dimensional experience. The much-anticipated show will open this week in Jacksonville at Immersive Art Space, 119 W. Beaver St., and runs through Nov. 6.

Guest: Fanny Curtat, art historian, Beyond Van Gogh.

Hunger in Northeast Florida

September is Hunger Action Month. People and organizations are working to bring awareness to hunger and food insecurity across our area. More than 240,000 people in Northeast Florida are food insecure, including 1 in 5 children.

Guest: Susan King, president and CEO, Feeding Northeast Florida.

One local leader who’s joining the fight is our own David Luckin.
