Celebrating Juneteenth in Fayetteville

Longtime members of the Fayette County Branch of the NAACP gathered at the Church Street Park in Fayetteville June 18 for the local organization’s first Juneteenth Celebration. Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States. It commemorates the date of the arrival in Texas of the news of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation during the Civil War. Photo/Ben Nelms.
