WalkArlington Presents: Juneteenth Black Heritage Walk

June 18, 2023 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

Discover Black heritage in Arlington on a walk to honor Juneteenth led by Craig Syphax, a board member and former president of the Black Heritage Museum of Arlington. 

This two-hour guided walk will take place near Columbia Pike with stops at St. John’s Baptist Church, Freedman’s Village Bridge, and more. Along the route, Craig will discuss the story of some of these significant sites, in addition to his family’s deep-rooted history in and around Arlington. The walk will end at the Black Heritage Museum of Arlington, where participants can feel free to explore and enjoy. 


We’ll meet at Towers Park and walk up to St. John’s Baptist Church, which is our first stop on the tour, located at 1905 Columbia Pike.
