Jack Johnson’s Birthday Celebration

Come celebrate Jack Johnson’s 145th birthday at Galveston’s Own Farmers Market!

John Arthur Johnson, nicknamed the “Galveston Giant,” was an American boxer who, at the height of the Jim Crow era, became the first African-American world heavyweight boxing champion. His memory continues to flourish on the island.

Enjoy celebrating with a tasty treat from Food of Life (for the first 100 folks!), color special Jack Johnson Trading Cards featuring fun historical facts, a chat with the Rosenberg Library’s Special Collection team, and of course, the opportunity to shop local at the island’s weekly Farmers Market!
