Heritage Property in Texas Owned by Black Family for Over 150 Years

Nerissa Knight stepped onto a family land and heritage property in Texas that has been owned for over 150 years. Linda Berry Mallory, daughter of the late Merdine Berry, spoke with BNC about the family’s annual tradition of celebrating Juneteenth. “My mother would hold a Juneteenth celebration and it was free to all,” Berry said. The 100-acre land was temporarily lost by her mother before the case was brought to the U.S Supreme Court to be fought to regain ownership. Berry’s great-great-grandparents who originally owned this land were free slaves. The annual event is a reminder of how slaves were cheated out of freedom.

The family looks forward to the annual event and will continue to shed light on the heritage of the land.
