Description

VP on the Scene presents Juneteenth Jubilation!

This year, let's celebrate Juneteenth as a community. This event is free to the public and will feature a silent headphone party hosted by Quiet Kingz Headphone Events, free food provided by D&B Food Truck, a pop-up library from Charleston County Public Library, community beneficial vendors, and much more.

A quick history lesson on Juneteenth:
"Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation - which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance." - www.juneteenth.com

This is a family friendly event. Bring the children, bring your auntie, bring your uncle, your cousins, your parents, your friends, and so on.
