Juneteenth Commemoration 2022 Event Schedule

June 11 @ 11:30 am-June 19 @ 9:00 am

A Celebration of African American History, Music, Art & Literature

“African American history, music and art cannot be separated from the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the forced transportation of millions of African people across the Atlantic who were then enslaved. The cultures from which they were torn and the conditions into which they were forced both contributed to the sounds of African American music and the creation of art and literature.”
