The Anniversary of Freedom | Adam Chuong | MID Industrial Design 2019
I had the honor of helping out with and attending DARE’s Annual Juneteenth Celebration. For those who are unfamiliar with the holiday, Juneteenth dates back to June 19, 1865, when news of the end of the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation’s declaration reached Galveston, Texas—nearly two-and-a-half years after it was issued by Lincoln.

Drum performances! This little girl was very enthusiastic!
A ceremony for ancestors and those lost.
The celebration itself was a great way for me to meet members of DARE outside of the Tenant Homeowner’s Association meetings and casually get to know peoples’ stories.
