SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
Negro Election Day established in 1639, not 1740.  

Update on Negro Election Day history:  In 1693 the General Court of Massachusetts ruled that the title General Election will become Negro Election Day and it would be a principal holiday.  

In 1831, the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company wanted to stop the mixing of the races and separate itself from Negro Election Day's participation in their annual parade, so they separated themselves by honoring the "no blacks" in the Boston Common law and excluded them from participation.  They also spread the name, "Nigger Election" so it separated Negro Election Day from Artillery Day.

"35 years before the signing of the declaration of Independence, a democratic system was established.  284 years later, we continue to honor that democratic system at the annual Negro Election Day State Holiday.  We need your support on July 20, 2024!

Come out, join our celebration, participate in our annual Parade, rejoice with our flag raising, all while enjoying live music and honoring the men who strived for excellence, but, for a long time have been forgotten."

Salem United, Inc and its President Ms. Doreen Wade
