Juneteenth Celebration

June 22 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

To heal, to reconcile, to celebrate. Join us for projection art, an interactive exhibit, food, music, poetry and African drumming. This is a family friendly event, free to the public and all who enter in solidarity for racial justice.

Project Say Something is hosting a Juneteenth Celebration on Saturday, June 22 from 6 to 10pm in front of the Lauderdale County Courthouse. Join us for an evening of celebration, featuring African drummers, food vendors, music by DJ We Roc Entertainment, poetry, and song. Be a part of PSS’s hands-on display and be photographed standing for racial justice on our monument pedestal designed and created by local artists Kerrigan Casey and Brandon Stoll. Later in the evening we’ll be unveiling Florence’s first projection art exhibit on the front of the courthouse.

This is Project Say Something’s 2nd annual Juneteenth Celebration, which was traditionally celebrated to mark the end of slavery. This year, Court Street will be closed off between Alabama and College Streets for the celebration. This is a family friendly event to heal, to reconcile, and to celebrate. It is free to the public.

This program is sponsored by Project Say Something with the help of the Florence Police Department. Project Say Something’s mission is to confront racial injustice through black history by using non-violent communication, education, and community empowerment to reconcile the past with the present.
