Southside Community Center Juneteenth Celebration!
Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration of the legal emancipation of enslaved Black people in the United States. Not only is it a celebration of remembrance of the rich history of African American’s in this country, but also a celebration of our achievements in the continued struggle against oppression. Many communities celebrate for a day, a week, and even a month hosting celebrations, guest speakers, picnics and family gathering. In communities around the world people of all races, nationalities and religions are combining efforts to acknowledge a period in our history that shaped and continues to influence our society today.
