Juneteenth Celebration ‘Free-ish’ planned for June 17

SC4’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion invites the community to attend a virtual Juneteenth Celebration ‘Free-ish’ from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, June 17, hosted by AAmos Consulting Group.

This event features speakers discussing the history behind Juneteenth, bridging the gap between the African and Black Community and the Current State of Black America.

Juneteenth is a nationwide celebration of the end of slavery. On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers arrived in Texas and read the Emancipation Proclamation, announcing all enslaved people were free. This was more than two and a half years after it was issued on Jan. 1, 1863, by President Abraham Lincoln.
