Protesters gathered again on Friday in front of the Gordon County court house to mark Juneteenth, a holiday celebrating the emancipation of slaves in the United States. Despite a bit of rainfall, dozens of people held signs, chanted slogans and kneeled in silence. Organizers say they are in the planning stages of a community round table-type event to give members of the community a chance to meet with local leaders and elected officials.
