Gwinnett County Celebrates Freedom During Juneteenth Family Day Event

juneteenth Rhodes Jordan Park

Gwinnett County and the United Ebony Society are teaming up for a national event right here in Gwinnett County.

The family-friendly Juneteenth Celebration will be held at Rhodes Jordan Park tomorrow, June 19 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. The fun event will include historical presentations, performances, music, vendors, games and food trucks.

“We’re excited to partner with the United Ebony Society for this celebration of our vibrantly connected community,” said Gwinnett Community Outreach Director Shaunieka Taylor. “Together, we can commemorate Juneteenth, not just for its impact on the lives of African Americans, but for its indelible mark on American history.”

Juneteenth’s legacy dates back to June 19, 1865. On that day, Union troops marched into Galveston Bay, Texas to announce an executive decree that all those enslaved in Texas were now free.
Rhodes Jordan Park is located at 100 E. Crogan Street in Lawrenceville.

The Juneteenth Celebration follows a soil collection ceremony hosted by the County, city of Lawrenceville, the Gwinnett Historical Restoration and Preservation Board and the Gwinnett Remembrance Coalition near the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse. The ceremony will honor the life of Charles Hale — a black man who in 1911 was kidnapped and lynched by a white mob in downtown Lawrenceville.
