Juneteenth : A Celebration of Freedom

Jun 11, 2019

Durand-Hedden and the South Orange-Maplewood Community Coalition on Race created a program honoring Juneteenth, the African American celebration of the end of slavery in the US. The celebration, including music, dance and children’s activities, was held at the Durand-Hedden House on June 9th.

The celebration also included an extensive exhibit on the History of Slavery in New Jersey. The exhibit will remain available for viewing by appointment for most of the summer and is available online.
