Friends to Celebrate Juneteenth 2024

Please join us for a memorable Juneteenth celebration at Cooch’s Bridge Historic Site on Sunday, June 16 at 3pm.  We’ll hear some informative, inspiring words from Kenneth B. Morris, Jr., President and CEO of Douglass Family Projects and a descendant of BOTH Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington. He’ll help us connect our nation’s history of enslavement with the society we live in today and the one we build for tomorrow.  

We’ll also hear contemporary singer Nadjah Nicole make some beautiful music to mark the day, plus James Family descendant Crystal Simms, and Cooch’s Bridge Historic Site Interpreter Calvina Perry.

As is our tradition, people will “Say Their Names” to remember past lives and breathe life back into Cooch’s Bridge Historic Site.
