Program Description

Event Details

Juneteenth, also known as Emancipation Day, is celebrated annually to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in the United States.

Juneteenth has become an occasion to honor ancestors, recognize their sacrifices, and celebrate the achievements and contributions of Black Americans to the nation.

Bring your friends and family for a Juneteenth celebration especially designed for children.  We will read the book, “Opal Lee and What It Means to Be Free: The True Story of the Grandmother of Juneteenth”,  by Alice Faye Duncan.  We will then enjoy refreshments and music as we make some fun crafts. You can even honor your inner King or Queen by making a paper crown to celebrate your Royal Roots!

Children under 8 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All materials provided and all are welcome!
