Juneteenth Memorial

June 16, 2023

The Asheboro/Randolph County Branch of the NAACP is celebrating Juneteenth next month with several events.

A Juneteenth Memorial will be erected on Thursday, June 15; Friday, June 16; and Monday, June 19, in front of the Historic Randolph County Courthouse. The Memorial honors those individuals in Randolph County who were bought or sold into slavery. Using records from the county’s Register of Deeds as a source, the Memorial will display the names of more than 1,100 people — from infants to the elderly — how much they were bought and sold for or valued as, and the dates of these transactions.
