Juneteenth

 

At a time when this country is being challenged to confront its painful history of racism, let us take time to honor Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the U.S. Below are some things you can do to recognize this important holiday in the African American community.

  • Make a luminary (candle in sand in a paper bag) or other light and display it in front of your home at 8-9pm on Friday, June 19 along with a Juneteenth sign of support. (We could not find confirmation that this action is an official Black Lives Matter event, but a show of support is always good!)
