Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Even though we are still in a fight for equality and equity , Juneteenth is a day that we celebrate and acknowledge !!!!
This event includes music, food and vendors !!!!! Feel free to invite family and friends!
