The Waynesboro Republicans will host a Juneteenth Celebration on June 6th. Juneteenth was the name used by African-Americans following the Civil War to commemorate the end of slavery.
It was the Republican Party that ended slavery in 1865 and it is the grassroots Republican Party today that defends the Constitution and the Bill of Rights for all Americans.
The Waynesboro Juneteenth Celebration is to recall the historical ties that bind African-Americans and Republicans together.
