The Jacksonville Legacy Series was a non-profit initiative, created by Leadership Jacksonville to document and preserve the thoughts and ideas of the region’s most prominent leaders who have positively impacted the First Coast community.
Produced by Lindsey Films, the series of video conversations with Jacksonville leaders aired on WJCT. Each installment of the series is available for viewing on the WJCT website, Leadership Jacksonville’s website and YouTube Channel.
