This will be our 3rd Annual Juneteenth Celebration where we embrace our richness of African American history. During each hour of the celebration, there will be a series of performances by musical acts from our tri-State area. Dance performances from young ladies mimicking moves from majorettes at HBCU's (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). Dynamic poems from poets from around the city. A basketball game for entertainment. And to round off the event, attendees will learn historical facts about Juneteenth. A variety of food trucks will be in the area and of course vendors will be in attendance to sell accessories, jewelry, novelties and books, and much more. Exhibitors will present to provide community resources to attendees, such as, voter registration.
