By Lynn Jones – A native of Detroit, Michigan, Angie Nixon was 10 years old in 1994 when my family and I moved to Duval County.  I met our state representative when we lived within Northsides 32209 area code boundary.  Nixon-Morene began her political career as an aide/intern to Councilwoman Mia Jones and then matriculated to the office of Councilman Reggie Brown where she gained more insight into the City of Jacksonville political arena.   She was elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2020 and reelected subsequently.

A graduate of Stanton High School and the University of Florida, Nixon-Morene has been a staple in this community as an activist urging citizens to vote, clean their neighborhoods and ‘stay woke’ within the State of Florida District 13 African American Diaspora radius. 

To celebrate her 40th birthday, the Free Press was invited to her ‘Futuristic Wakanda Bash,’ held this past weekend at various locations.  Keeping an eye on black owned business, she used the opportunity to highlight local entrepreneurs. The first location was a mid-day selfie extravaganza inside the Selfie Showroom on Lem Turner.  The showroom has more than eight interactive rooms with various themes. The birthday culminated after-dark for grown folks party was held inside Nixon-Morene’ Cafe Resistance on Soutel Drive.  Throughout the night guest celebrated Angie for her tenacity, dedication and support in her role to the State of Florida.
