Honoring Juneteenth



John Bailey was the only African American from Norfolk to serve in WWI and for unknown reasons his name was omitted from the plaque honoring all veterans when the WWI monument was erected in 1921. It was added this year as part of the monument’s restoration commissioned by the Norfolk Community Association. Visit Norfolk’s Memorial Green to see this and the beautiful restoration work.
