About the Event

At 10:00 A.M., Saturday, June 22, 2024, Jacksonville will initiate the 159th celebration of Juneteenth with the Freedom Walk Parade. If you participated in the MLK Holiday Grand Parade, you should register to participate in the 6th Annual Juneteenth Freedom Walk Parade.

The Freedom Walk is symbolic of the emancipated ex-enslaved blacks leaving the plantation in 1865 only to experience a neo-slavery existence. And the trek continued in the 1920s and 30s as more than 4 million blacks left the South by migrating to the West, Midwest, and the North to escape terrorism, lynching, and oppression. We have experienced Reconstruction, Jim Crow, Benign Neglect, Cointelpro, Affirmative Action, Voter Supression, etc., all on the 159 years of travel on Freedom Road.

So, come and commemorate being “Free-ish” on Saturday, June 22, 2024. Last year, we had tots in strollers and bus loads of seniors participating in the Freedom Walk Parade. Bring your entire family to commemorate  the legacy of struggle, accomplishment, and resiliency as we stay "True to our God, True to our native land."
