Community Archives & Scanning Event

This year, Houston will celebrate the grand re-opening of Emancipation Park. The historic,10-acre park was purchased in 1870 by formerly enslaved African Americans and served as the dedicated site for annual Juneteenth celebrations. In anticipation of this momentous occasion, the Gregory School invites you to share your photographic memories of the park and Juneteenth celebrations with us to be included in a new Emancipation Park archival collection. We welcome your donation of original photos and documents, and will make reproductions for those who prefer to keep their originals.
