Celebrate Juneteenth!


Juneteenth originated as a joyous celebration of freedom when the last slaves in America were finally freed, and the tradition only grows stronger every year. Black communities across the country are hosting events to reflect upon the past and rejoice in the freedom African Americans won on this day. Three of the largest Juneteenth events are listed below, but do not fret if your city is not featured! Most major cities have their own celebrations, so be sure to look out for one in your area.
