The Sanibel Historical Museum & Village has added educational entertainment to its website.
Recently, the Gavin brothers – Eugene and Ken – spoke about black history in Sanibel at a volunteer update event. Officials described the program as both informative and, at times, surprising. To watch the lecture online, visit www.sanibelmuseum.org and click “Volunteer Updates” under the “Volunteers” tab at the top of the page.
Also, the Twilight Talk “Fish (and Fish!) Stories From Sanibel” can be found online. With Jim Pickens, Ray Rhodes and Ty Symroski, it’s a “to do with lots of laughs.” To watch the lecture, visit www.sanibelmuseum.org and click “Twilight Conversations” under the “News” tab at the top of the page.
Updates are being done in accordance with CDC guidelines, with masks and social distancing.
“Our volunteer updates are done without a live audience due to the virus, so our guests only speak to the camera and moderator,” said executive director Emilie Alfino. “I think it makes it a bit more difficult for them, but it worked really well for our audience.”
The Twilight Talks took place outdoors with fewer than 50 people in attendance.
The next update will be for Algiers and the video will be available by mid-March.
“We’re postponing future Twilight Talks to early next year, hoping we can have a larger – and live – audience at that time,” Alfino said.
