Dallas will have its first Juneteenth march this year thanks to these local organizers

Dallas will have its first march in celebration on Juneteenth this year thanks to a group of local organizers who wanted to mark the day that enslaved people in Texas found out about the Emancipation Proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln that made them free.

Elite News and the Blair Foundation are hosting the Juneteenth Celebration, March and Festival on June 19. The 3.2 mile-long march will begin at 10 a.m. at William Blair Jr. Park and end at Fair Park, where the festival will begin.
