Juneteenth Celebration

June 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Celebrate our newest Federal holiday and the oldest known holiday that observes the end of slavery in the U.S. Join us for Coffee Hour with treats from a local Black-owned business and information about Black heroes. Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when Gen. Gordon Granger announced that the enslaved people in Texas were free by the order of the president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect on January 1, 1862! Who was Gen. Granger and why do we care? Come to find out and stay for special Juneteenth treats!
