Family Festival 2009 Commemorative Booklet
This is to request your organization’s participation in the Juneteenth Family Festival Commemorative Booklet.
Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating
back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, arrived in
Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.
Forty Acres and a Mule, Inc., a 501(c)3 corporation, is gearing up for its annual Juneteenth Celebration. This
year’s amphitheater activities begin Saturday, June 13, 2009 an ‘Old School’ concert (music from the 60’s, 70’s
and 80’s) and conclude Sunday evening, June 14, 2009 with a Gospel Music Extravaganza. Additionally, a food
court, exhibition tent for vendors, sponsors, public service information and health examinations will again be a
major Juneteenth complement.
With an expected crowd of more than 10,000, the Juneteenth Celebration is an ideal community activity to
