Fort Bend County Commissioner Dexter L. McCoy invites you to the official groundbreaking ceremony for the African-American Memorial at Bates Allen Park in Kendleton, Texas, at 10:30 a.m. on Juneteenth (June 19th) 2024.

Click here for a sneak peek at what is planned for the African-American Memorial. It’s a space that will unite two historic Black cemeteries that were literally crumbling from neglect, pay homage to the Sugar Land 95 and victims of lynching, feature three-story structures covered in Adinkra symbols, offer green spaces for reflection and healing, and even more to memorialize Black stories from the area.

Should you have any questions, please call the office at 281-243-4800.

Guests are invited to attend the Historic Kendleton Juneetenth Celebration that will follow the groundbreaking.
