Elevated Voices
Thursday, June 16, 2022

On June 19, 1865, federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, to announce that the Civil War had ended and that all enslaved people were free. In the past 2 years, Juneteenth has increased in popularity and become a holiday celebrated all over the United States, commemorating a more accurate and inclusive date of independence for this country.

Gather together with your fellow Gladstonians to celebrate this important holiday. Join for food from local Black-owned restaurants, fun lawn games, and music. Don’t miss out on the Black History Museum located in 107 C/D.
