“Matanzas Voices” at SACA

South Anastasia Communities Association (SACA) meets Wednesday, December 7, at 7:00 p.m. in Whitney Hall for a speaker meeting with Anna Hamilton of “Matanzas Voices.” A social period with refreshments will precede the meeting at 6:30 p.m. The meeting is free and open to the public.

              Hamilton, a radio producer and oral historian, will present an audio and video chronicle of those who work and live along the historic Matanzas River. She received a Florida Humanities Grant to support the beginning work of this project. Neil Armingeon, the Matanzas Riverkeeper, and photographer Walter Coker also participated in the project.

              Hamilton, a St. Augustine native, graduated from New College in Sarasota, received a Master’s Degree in Southern Studies from the University of Mississippi, where her thesis won the annual Ann Abadie Award for Documentary Media. In addition, Hamilton studied as a Fulbright scholar on the island Republic of Mauritius, off the African coast. Currently, Hamilton’s podcasts are available on Watershed Radio.

SACA is a non-profit neighborhood association founded to preserve the south end of the county’s rural and coastal character. Meetings are held in Whitney Hall on the campus of University of Florida’s Whitney Laboratory of Marine Bioscience, 9505 Ocean Shore Boulevard (A1A).
