Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Juneteenth celebrates African American freedom and achievement, while encouraging continuous self-development and respect for all cultures.

The FREE, fun filled day for the entire family (ALL AGES) will feature Free Health Screenings and a wide array of African-American music, art and history and culture.
