Look Around Lubbock: Juneteenth Celebration
Lubbock Roots Historical Arts Council, 100 Black Men of West Texas, Voice of Hope Rape Crisis Center and South Plains Hunger Solutions invite the public to gather at the Booker T. Washington Garden on Juneteenth at 6:00 p.m. to celebrate the East Lubbock community planting two apple trees in honor of Eric Strong and Dr. Joseph Alvin Chatman and tour the community garden.
Joseph Alvin Chatman founded the Chatman Medical and Surgical Clinic and Hospital, Lubbock’s first hospital for African Americans. Eric Strong was an East Lubbock Champion and founder of the Roots Historical Arts Council. He was a storyteller and believed African American history is a fundamental part of Lubbock’s History.
