Marietta College is hosting a Juneteenth National Independence Day celebration on Friday, June 14, starting at 5:30 p.m., in the Hermann Fine Arts Center. While the national holiday is on June 19, the College is excited to welcome the campus and the greater Marietta community to special programming designed to educate people on the importance of this national holiday.

The educational materials provided will be free of cost, accompanied by guest speakers Ilene Evans, as Harriet Tubman, and Hermana Glass-Hill, who will discuss the life of Susie King Taylor. Guests will receive different forms of literature that discuss the history and the importance of the Emancipation Proclamation and how it connects with our location.

The event is co-sponsored by the Mid-Ohio Valley Civil War Round Table and includes a partnership with the McDonough Center for Leadership & Business.
