For too long in America the simple ease of mobility—one’s ability to move between different levels in society—was not a reality for African Americans. Their movement once restricted by the unjust Jim Crow laws of the South gave rise to the Great Migration to northern cities. By car, train, or bus and sometimes on foot, they went in search of better opportunities.
This new freedom of movement became a force to dismantle racial barriers and make a direct impact on the building up of wealth in African American communities that has stretched across generations. In celebration of those who journeyed so far, we present the Juneteenth Mobility Stroll and Roll.
The Stroll and Roll, hosted by the East Dearborn Downtown Development Authority, is just one of several major events planned for 2021. A broad range of transportation modes that represent the current ways that we connect with one another, community and resources will include bikes, motorcycles, vespas, skateboards, scooters, autonomous cars, hybrid buses and walking.
The route will begin at Michigan Avenue and Schaefer and end at City Hall Park. Several stops are planned along the route. The Stroll and Roll will also have an array of fun activities geared toward all ages including a Kid’s Zone and a Mobility Zone as part of the attractions.
- A Kick Off Program featuring dignitaries, speakers, music, and a stretching session will be offered from 9 – 10 AM on the steps of City Hall Artspace.
- The Stroll & Roll starts at 10 AM
- Stations & Vendors will be located along the route
- There will also be voting stations hosted by the A Philip Randolph Institute to help get people registered.
- Businesses will be welcoming along the route
- Vendors planned in City Hall Park before and after the event.
