Dalonja Duncan, outside the Lincolnville Museum where she is the director. The museum is in the former Excelsior High School a segregated school for black students. Lincolnville is historically where St. Augustine's black community lived. Talking about the US Presidential election that will be held on 6 November, 2012, Duncan says: 'My grandmother went to school here. My father and mother lived in Palm County and went to school here and later they were integrated into the white school. I was born and raised in Lincolnville. Whether people will come out and vote. That's what will decide the election. People here don't talk about politics that much. I voted for the President last time. He fulfilled some of his campaign promises. The country was a mess when he took office and I'm glad he got us off the hook. He bailed out the Detroit motor industry. That was American cars. Enough said. I guess he did what he could do and I think he's still in touch with his base, but it's mainly his wife who is. I'd like to see him do a more but he can't spread himself too thin. I'm 50/50 on how to vote. I'm going to pray about it and see where God leads me. It's about fixing the economy but as a church goer, family values are also very important for me.'.
