UCCRP’s JUNETEENTH Remembrance and Celebration on June 19, 2021

The Union County Community Remembrance Project (UCCRP) is hosting their inaugural JUNETEENTH Remembrance and Celebration event on June 19, 2021, in downtown Union, SC. In conjunction with visionaries from past Juneteenth celebrations, the UCCRP will host this premier event with the intent of establishing an annual tradition. The goal of this event is to first remember and honor the victims of lynching in Union County and through the culmination of a multi-year effort to erect historical markers detailing these events. The second goal is to recognize the resilience of the Black community through the celebration of this significant national holiday of Juneteenth.

UCCRP JUNETEENTH will begin at 12:30pm at the L.W. Long Community Resource Center and old Union County Jail (213 W Main St, Union SC 29379) with a program and ceremony to remember and restore honor to the members of the Black community who lost their lives due to racial violence and lynching in Union County. The JUNETEENTH "Remembrance” portion of the program will feature two main ceremonies - first, a Historical Marker Installation/Reveal; and second, a Soil Collection ceremony. The program will also feature speeches from UCCRP Co-Leads and Leadership Team, Union Mayor Harold Thompson, and representatives from the Equal Justice Initiative, among others. Descendants of lynching victims will be honored as special guests and centered throughout the program. In line with UCCRP’s “Say Their Names” campaign to recognize and honor each individual lynched in Union County. There they will also be readings of a small descriptive history about each person’s life.

During the ceremony three new historical markers will be revealed in downtown Union, SC – one marker at the old Union County Jail documenting the Union Jail Raid and Massacre of 1871, and two markers at the L.W. Long Community Resource Center recognizing lynching victims during the Reconstruction and Jim Crow periods. There will also be a soil collection ceremony, where descendants and coalition members will transfer soil from the site of each victim’s lynching to the victim’s designated collection jars. One set of jars will be housed in the L.W. Long Community Resource Center and a second set will be sent for inclusion at the Soil Collection display at EJI’s Legacy Museum in Montgomery, AL.  For more details on the markers and soil collection, visit our website at

From 2:00pm-6:00pm, UCCRP JUNETEENTH will then transition to the Celebration portion of the event, with the theme “It Takes a Village. The theme is inspired by the concept of how villages form a community that cares for one another through various aspects of shared life. The goal is to celebrate and connect the Black community in Union through various thematic ‘villages.’ Each village is represented by the FHHEEEL acronym – Food, Health, Housing, Education, Employment, Economic Development, and Life Skills.


Each village will provide services and education to the community. There will be over 40 participating vendors, agencies, businesses, and organizations in the villages, along with food trucks, music entertainment, and artist performances. A featured Artist Collective will be led by local artist Marcus Foster Jr. and Michael Gage. Activities will include guided tours of the old Union Jail, a virtual lecture by historian Dr. Elaine Frantz, a SCDHEC vaccination tent, mobile yoga van, poetry performances, gospel music by Serenity, kids’ activities, and book donations from the Friends of the Library at Friends on Main, among many others. Businesses on Main St who are staying open as participants in the event will form a Village Market. The Village Market will encourage attendees to support local business by hosting a Puzzle Hunt where visitors can collect puzzle pieces from those businesses to win a prize. For more information about each village and what vendors are participating in each village, visit the website (link below), look for our detailed event participant flyers, and visit our Facebook event page (link below).


UCCRP will be livestreaming the ceremony and various portions of the celebration on the UCCRP JUNETEENTH Celebration 2021 Facebook page for those who cannot attend in person. To follow along with event updates and learn more about individual villages, visit our Facebook event page at The UCCRP and WeGOJA Foundation welcome  families, church families, class reunions and work families to sign up for the Family Space in the Life Skills Village.
