Juneteenth celebrates African American freedom and achievement while encouraging continuous self-development and respect for all cultures. As it takes on a greater national and even global perspective, the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865 are not forgotten. Currently, Juneteenth is enjoying phenomenal growth within communities throughout the country and is either a state holiday or a day of commemoration in the 50 states. Institutions such as the Smithsonian, the Henry Ford Museum and others have begun sponsoring Juneteenth-centered activities - all with the mission to promote and cultivate knowledge and appreciation of African American history and culture.

 

“It is imperative to The City of Prichard to elevate the awareness of Juneteenth not only because of its importance to African American history but also because of the affiliation our area has to the last known African slaves brought to the Americas by The Clotilde.” states Prichard Mayor, Jimmy Gardner. “By celebrating Juneteenth, we honor its significance to the African American community by sharing this history with the children and families of Prichard and it’s neighboring areas.
