Event description

Description

ONE DC is excited to announce our Juneteenth in DC 2019 events celebrating Black liberation and justice! Juneteenth is an annual celebration to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved Black people in Texas on June 19, 1865. This is a time for us to reflect on our collective history of fighting for emancipation and equity, to celebrate and be joyful about our triumphs, and to recommit with passion and discipline to the current struggle for liberation.

Our Juneteenth Community Learning Event will feature historians, community organizers, and artists speaking about the history and significance of Juneteenth, as well as the current struggle for liberation today.
