JUNETEENTH is the oldest celebration commemorating the true ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers arrived in Texas with the news that the war had ended and that the slaves were now free. Note that this was the 2.5 years after the official law on January 1, 1863.
Come celebrate this world-changing event – with music, dance, poetry, food and drink. Also, see the movie A Soundtrack to a Revolution, produced by Mark Downie. Sure to be a wonderful event.
