Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day is observed as a public holiday in various U.S. states. This celebration honors the day in 1865 when enslaved peoples within Texas and Louisiana finally heard they’d been freed, two months after the Civil War had ended.
In celebration, you’ll have an opportunity to hear from multiple speakers, a spoken word poet, enjoy some music and even screen a brief mini-documentary highlighting a Juneteenth Pageant. Additionally, during our time together we will be honoring those we’ve lost and those that have been taken from us. We hope you can join us for this impactful experience!
