    Giovanni Lawrence

    I like to refer to the 12 oclock boys' appearances as the "the Baltimore hood parade". Photo taken the day before the Freddie Gray protest and uprising.

    Meshed from my past graffiti writing of messages and color composition with a dash of photo journalism. As I finish my last semester of industrial engineering, I find myself maintaining quality in quantity where I take thought provoked images minimally. My photographs are an extension of my mind and I tend to capture what I feel is right by my soul.

  • What is Juneteenth?

    Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America.

     

    The June 19th announcement came more than two and a half years after Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. After Emancipation, many white slave owners moved deep into Texas to avoid freeing people. E after word of Freedom arrived in Galveston TX, many enslavers deliberately suppressed the information until after the harvest, and event beyond to keep Black people enslaved. Despite being proclaimed free, slaves were “advised to remain quietly at their present homes and work for wages.” What followed was called "the scatter," when droves of former slaves left the state to find family members or head north in pursuit of economic opportunities.

     

    In the 1870s, a group former slaves pooled $800 together through local churches to purchase ten acres of land and create Emancipation Park to host future Juneteenth celebrations in modern-day Houston.

     

    Today Juneteenth is observed in cities across the country. Traditions include public readings of the Emancipation Proclamation, singing traditional songs and reading of works by noted African-American writers. Celebrations may include rodeos, street fairs, cookouts, family reunions, park parties and historical reenactments. The Mascogos, descendants of Black Seminoles, of Coahuila, Mexico also celebrate Juneteenth.

     

    Dovecote has been hosting a Juneteenth celebration since 2017 which brings together hundreds of folks from across Baltimore to celebrate and uplift Black community building and economic self sufficiency.
