Elder Honoring Ceremony

The Elder Honoring is an annual tradition and trademark of the Juneteenth Coalition of Greater New Haven. Each honoree is selected to be part of this revered ceremony that recognizes the work, accomplishments, and dedication of unsung members of the black community. Such persons usually go undetected, unappreciated and unrecognized by the very people they serve and fight for. We, the JCGNH, honor them, put them on the pedestal they deserve to be placed upon and pronounce their position of eldership.

Juneteenth Village

The concept of cooperative economics - Ujamaa - is the lifeblood of any community. The exchange of goods and services is the engine of a community. The Juneteenth Village, represented by vendors in that section of the Green, symbolizes thriving towns like Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma, often referred to as “Black Wall Street”. Come and support the various entrepreneurs who welcome you and your families.
