About this event

This year, Johnson House Historic Site will host our 15th annual celebration of Juneteenth! A National Historic Landmark, Underground Railroad station and Center for Social Advocacy, our site represents what everyday people have done and can do to make a difference in their community and beyond. The Johnson House example of historic partnership – between Africans seeking freedom, the abolitionist Johnson family, and other abolitionists – serve as a catalyst to inspire, uplift and empower current and future generations. As an empathetic community representative that champions challenges directly – and works with and through other established entities – our Center expands serves as “a place to engage the community, facilitate shared conversation, build advocacy, and act to address contemporary issues that negatively impact our communities today.

Events and activities happen up and down the 6300 block of Germantown Avenue.
