We celebrate Juneteenth to commemorate that on June 19, 1865 – more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed – the enslaved people of Galveston, Texas were told that slavery had ended. The Bexley Juneteenth Planning Committee invites you to join us for a day of recognition, reflection and celebration of the freedom, struggle and resilience that this day marks.
Bexley’s Juneteenth planning committee is hosting a Juneteenth observance on Saturday, June 19th from 12:00-5:00 pm at St. Charles Preparatory School – 2010 E. Broad Street. The event includes activities, dancing, a vendor marketplace, and a keynote presentation by State Senator Hearcel F. Craig.
