The East Baton Rouge Parish Recreation and Park Commission will host two Juneteenth celebrations at Howell Place Gym and Gus Young Park.
Both events will include food, games and music and are free and open to the public.
Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19 that the Union soldiers, led by Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas, with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.
“BREC celebrates Juneteenth as a way to remember the past, recognize where we need to be and look to the future. These events build a sense of community while bringing people together in an outdoor, active and healthy environment,” BREC Superintendent Carolyn McKnight said.
BREC, along with community partner CADAV, will host its first Juneteenth celebration from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 6 at 7717 Howell Blvd. For more information on this event, call (225) 357-4779.
From noon to 4 p.m. June 13, BREC will host its second Juneteenth event in partnership with Councilwoman C. Denise Marcelle and the Martin L. King Jr. Community Center, at Gus Young Park, located at 4200 Gus Young Ave. For more information on this event, call (225) 389-7804.
