EASTERN SHORE JUNETEENTH FESTIVAL
In early 2018, two community organizers connected to revamp the spirit of Juneteenth on Maryland's lower Eastern Shore. The two would partner with the Chipman Foundation to hold the inaugural year of the festival at the Chipman Cultural Center in Salisbury. The event's first year was a glimpse of its potential to be a catalyst for the restoration of Black pride on the Eastern Shore. Since that day, the pair have grown into a larger committee, a group committed to establishing a permanent appreciation and celebration of Juneteenth for the region.
