This year we have turned our one day event into a 3 day summit starting on June 18 and running through to June 20th, 2021. This year is shaping up to be like no other with a weekend Summit celebration that starts on Friday with professionals and residents talking about Health and Wellness; Saturday our hybrid virtual / In-person festival and ends highlighting aspiring youth entrepreneurs on Sunday at our Juneteenth Pomp.

Why we celebrate:

Across the United States, people of all walks of life share the understanding that July 4th is the long time celebration of the Declaration of Independence. America was finally free from the dependence of the British and was considered to be an independent collection of nations. However, Africans in America did not share that experience, for they were still being owned and considered 3/5ths of a man. On June 19, 1865, news came from the soldiers who landed in Galveston, Texas that the Civil War had ended and that slaves were now free, hence our celebration of Juneteenth is the Black Independence Day.

In honor of this long time coming, Africans in America have celebrated with food, dancing, singing, and celebration of the right to live and pursue happiness outside of being owned by another human being. Today, through organized efforts and collaborations of different organizations, solidarity in how we celebrate is showcased through literary expression and images of the numerous shades of Black in music, technology, art, science, and business takes center stages throughout communities that reflect a new generation of talent. These communities are the site where the torches of inspiration are passed and are encouraged to continue the tradition of celebrating annually.
