About this event

NAACP DeKalb Affirmation: Yesterday, enslavement. Today, liberty. With all my might and the grace of God, I shall fight to be forever free.

Celebrated each year on January 1st, Jubilee Day commemorates the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 by President Abraham Lincoln ending slavery in rebellious Confederate states. We observe this historic moment by gathering, remembering, and celebrating what is considered Independence Day for Black Americans.
