2024 Juneteenth Celebration

Wednesday, June 19, 2024


Now a federal holiday, Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. Originating in Texas, it’s been observed on the 19th of June annually since 1865. Join us for activities to commemorate a special date in history for African Americans.

20 and Odd

20 and Odd serves as an artistic response to the commemoration of the Quadricentennial – 400 years of Africans in America through dance and drama.  The multimedia presentation takes each viewer on a journey, from the past to the present day.

Lucy Depp Experience

The Lucy Depp Experience is a project that contemplates the Depp family lineage and land from the lenses of modern performing artists. The home was established on nearly 400 acres in Concord Township in 1835. Abram Depp purchased the land from Joseph Sullivant (son of Franklinton founder Lucas Sullivant) making it Delaware county’s first farm owned by an African-American. The stories are told from the lens of those who live on, on the land that is still sustained, by persons who understand its history.
