Juneteenth: Leaving A Legacy

June 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm at Bridge To Success

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. It is an annual recognition of the day, June 19, 1865, that the enslaved in Texas learned of their freedom, although the Emancipation Proclamation had actually granted freedom two and a half years earlier. Over the years, Juneteenth commemorations were established across the country and have grown into jubilant celebrations of achievement, community, and heritage.

 

This year the Waterbury Juneteenth Committee in partnership with Howard K. Hill to host a Virtual Juneteenth Celebration on Friday, June 19, 2020, at 4:00 PM. This event is free of charge.
