MARIETTA - Join the Marietta History Center (MHC) as it continues its Diverse Cobb programming with a celebration of the Juneteenth holiday. Diverse Cobb programming focuses on many facets of local black history with the goal of educating the community on overlooked, difficult, and complex topics.  For 4 weeks, beginning May 24 and leading up to Juneteenth on June 18th, the MHC will be showing the 4 volumes of The Lemon Street Chronicles oral history films. Each volume will be shown one week at a time consecutively leading up to the Juneteenth holiday. These presentations are included FREE with paid museum admission! 

The Lemon Street Chronicles is a brand-new oral history series of interviews with Lemon Street High School alumni created by Tim Penn. The Lemon Street primary and high schools were the segregated schools for African Americans in Marietta and much of Cobb County until 1967. Copies of the Volume 1 DVD can also be purchased in the Museum Store for $15. 

Also, as a part of our Juneteenth celebration, museum admission will be FREE all day on the actual Juneteenth holiday. FREE admission is a part of our Pop-In for Family Fun program. June’s Pop-In program theme is Cultures of Cobb.
