Juneteenth, officially Juneteenth National Independence Day, is a federal holiday commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. It is also a celebration of African-American culture. Though it has been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States since 1865, the day was recognized as a federal holiday on June 17, 2021.
Join us, and special guest Common Council Member Rita Worthington, for an informal look at the holiday’s history, and its significance in present-day America.
