Keep Your Head to the Sky by Telling Your Stories
Community. Culture. Educate. Celebrate.
We had so much fun at Halloran Park on June 19th from 4-6 pm at our program full of music, a walking gallery, an exciting raffle, and lots of local Black owned businesses celebrating Juneteenth!
Folks brought their own seating, some food and drink (no alcohol) to enjoy, and musical instruments to play along with a couple of the songs we will all sang together.
“Juneteenth is an annual holiday observing the end of slavery in the U.S. and marks the day (June 19, 1865) when news of emancipation reached people in the deepest parts of the former Confederacy in Galveston, Texas.” - Wall Street Journal
