Juneteenth: A Descendant’s Perspective: ‘Above All Else, It’s a Story of Redemption’

Friends Zinnia Huggins and Violet Smith carry the Juneteenth flag in anticipation of Groton's first celebration of the newest Federal holiday (voted June 17, 2021). This year, Groton will fly six Juneteenth flags in front of local buildings. Local celebrations include a family picnic with music and dancing, organized by the GPL, on Tuesday June 21 (rain date 23) at the Gazebo behind the library. Also, the Groton History Center hosts Jeffrey Bouthweel at The Groton Center in West Groton on Sunday June 19. All are encouraged to learn more and pick up a free book at GPL (donated by the Diversity Task Force) entitled On Juneteenth by Annette-Gordon Reed who is speaking (zoom) on Monday June 20. For more information on Juneteenth, please visit the GPL or
