FCTV Exclusive: Juneteenth at Highfield

Juneteenth is often cited as African-American Independence Day, a special day of recognition by many municipalities and states and now a federal Holiday. The observances commemorate June 19, 1865, the day the Emancipation Proclamation was finally enforced in Texas, the last of the seceding states to be occupied by the federal army. To commemorate this year’s event the Woods Hole Diversity Committee sponsored a contemplative walk through Beebe Woods in collaboration with Highfield Hall and Gardens. We stopped by to speak with the organizers to learn more about this event.
