Juneteenth,EmancipationPark

Emancipation Park


3108 Dowling Street
Houston, Texas

Juneteenth is a nationally celebrated day commemorating the freedom and achievement of African-Americans in the United States. Emancipation Park was purchased over 100 years ago in honor of this celebration, and is still used for Juneteenth celebrations today. The park is a symbol of the success within the African-American community, because it is one of the first plots purchased by a black American. Reverend Jack Yates bought this ten-acre site in the 19th century, in the name of Juneteenth. Teach your children about the significance of Juneteenth, and stroll the beautiful site of the annual celebration.
