Saturday, June 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The West Medford Community Center presents its second annual Juneteenth Celebration, a cultural celebration of African American emancipation and freedom. Juneteenth, a contraction of June 19th, is the day in 1865 when the last of enslaved African Americans were freed, more than two years after the Emancipation proclamation. The day celebrates Black excellence, leadership, community and culture.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, celebrations will take place on Facebook, YouTube, and the Medford Community Media public access station (Comcast Ch. 3 and Verizon Ch. 47).
