    Juneteenth Free Family Day

    8junJuneteenth Free Family Day

    Event Details

    Telfair kicks off its 12th annual Juneteenth observance with a Free Family Day filled with storytelling and demonstrations highlighting African American history and Gullah culture. Juneteenth is the oldest public celebration of the end of slavery in the United States.

    Telfair’s celebration was founded by local historian and poet Vaughnette Goode-Walker, who remains the event’s creative force. Included are storytelling programs by longtime presenters Jamal Toure and Queen Quet, hands-on activities for students, demonstrations of traditional crafts, a 3 p.m. musical performance, and more.
