Join us  as we commemorate Juneteenth, a significant day in American history. Juneteenth marks the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in 1863, when news of their freedom finally reached Galveston, Texas. This year, we gather to honor this pivotal moment and the enduring spirit of resilience within our community.

Learn about the history and traditions of Juneteenth through engaging activities and thoughtful remembrance. Together, we will uplift and empower one another, recognizing the contributions of those who have shaped our past and those who continue to inspire us today.

We invite you to participate in a day filled with learning, reflection, and joy, as we come together to honor our shared heritage and journey towards a brighter future.
