FLORENCE – Project Say Something is hosting its 2nd Annual Juneteenth Celebration on Saturday, June 22 from 6-10pm in front of the Lauderdale County Courthouse. Join in for an evening of celebration featuring African drummers, food vendors, music by DJ We Roc Entertainment, poetry, and song. Be a part of the hands-on display and be photographed standing for racial justice on the monument pedestal designed by local artists, Kerrigan Casey and Brandon Stoll. Florence’s first projection art exhibit will be unveiled later in the evening in front of the courthouse.
The Juneteenth Celebration was traditionally celebrated to mark the end of slavery. Court Street will be closed to traffic between Alabama and College Streets for the celebration. This is a free family-friendly event to heal, reconcile, and celebrate.
The program is sponsored by Project Say Something assisted by the Florence Police Dept.
