Dañetta's design features images highlighting the history of Double Dutch, African American quilting & the Underground Railroad.
Following the dedication featuring a reading of an original poem created in recognition of Juneteenth by Ayana Askew, Hampton Roads Youth Poet Laureate Ambassador & remarks by Councilwoman Royster, enjoy a Double Dutch showcase, free food from Crop Circle Gourmet, "Copsicles" courtesy of the NPD, photo booth, music by DJ Jokin' Joe & more.
