Saturday, June 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The West Medford Community Center presents its second annual Juneteenth Festival, 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. The program will be presented on Facebook and YouTube as well as Medford Community Media channels 3 (Comcast) and 47 (Verizon).
