June 19, 2020, 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM @ Corner of 13th and Ave. E
The Lincoln Park Community Center will host the 20th Annual Juneteenth Celebration of Freedom Peace and Unity Walk on Friday, June 19, promoting peace and unity in the community. All are welcome to participate in this Juneteenth event celebrating freedom for all. Line-up will begin at 9:30 a.m. on the Corner of 13th and Ave. E with the walk starting at 10 a.m. ending at 13th St. and Ave. O. Those participating are encouraged to wear face-covering to slow the spread of COVID-19. Juneteenth is an annual celebration that commemorates the ending of slavery in the United States. Although President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation on Jan. 1, 1863 to free all slaves; the news of the emancipation didn’t reach slaves in Texas until June 19, 1865 – two and a half years later.
