Honor Juneteenth—the annual holiday commemorating the end of legal slavery in the United States—with a full day of activities celebrating self-expression, community, and Black liberation and creativity. Taking place on Father’s Day, this year’s event will feature activities for the whole family.

This program is free, but registration is required (link and schedule coming soon).

Programming developed in partnership with The Culture LP, which is celebrating ten years of uplifting the global majority through the power of the arts. Learn more: @theCultureLP

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when Union soldiers declared that enslaved people in Texas—the last Confederate state to abolish slavery—were free. Black people in Texas held the first “Juneteenth” celebration a year later, and it became a federal holiday in 2021. To learn more, read the article “What Is Juneteenth?” by Henry Louis Gates Jr.
