Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Despite the physical emancipation gained by enslaved Africans on June 19, 1865, their descendants would go on to fight the subsequent Black Codes & Jim Crow laws and lead the Civil Rights movement to dismantle segregation and push for equal rights under the law; however, in 2021, these same descendants are still fighting for various freedoms and the same equality aforementioned.

This event will be held outside. Adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols, including wearing a mask and maintaining a safe and comfortable distance.
