Former Madera City Councilman and Black Saints United member Donald Holley, holding plaque, receives numerous awards of recognition after being recognized as one of Madera’s Trailblazers during the Juneteenth Freedom Day celebration at Courthouse Park.


Black Saints United, in cooperation with the City of Madera, hosted the fourth annual Juneteenth Celebration on Wednesday at the Madera County Courthouse Museum. 

Before a standing room only crowd, members of the Madera community came out to support the Emancipation Proclamation that announced the end of slavery in the United States. 

“Let’s make this day a day of celebration,” said Black Saints United’s Anita Evans. “It was amazing to see so many people. We had about 140-150 people. I had about 100 chairs set up and there were a lot of people standing next to the museum. The weather was amazing.”
