Emancipation Day Parade


The Social Justice Committee invites you

to join us the day after New Year’s Day

as we march or ride in the

Emancipation Day Parade


Monday, January 2, 2017 at 11:00 a.m.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: EVERYONE!! This is a family-friendly event and a great way to start the New Year. Come march with us!

BRING: Friends, family, comfortable shoes, water or fluids to drink (you may get thirsty as we march along and greet spectators), and enthusiasm!

The church will have a float for those who cannot walk the distance — You are welcome to ride along on the float or walk beside the float and share lots of enthusiasm while enjoying the customized music personally selected by Reverend Danny Reed aka DJ Danny. DON’T MISS the Social Justice Committee’s FIRST event of the NEW YEAR. I’ve heard if you participate you will enjoy good luck and fortune throughout 2017!

WHERE & WHEN: Begin assembling at 9:00 a.m. at Burke High School on Fishburne Street. The Parade starts moving along the route by 11:00 a.m. Look for our float and our President Lincoln.

PARADE ROUTE: Depart Burke HS, moving east on Fishburne Street to Ashley Avenue, north on Ashley Avenue to Sumpter Street and east on Sumter to King Street, south on King to Calhoun Street, east on Calhoun to Emanuel AME Church, where the parade will disband.

The Social Justice Committee wishes you all a safe and happy New Year’s Eve— and we will see you the day after New Year’s Day!
