Juneteenth Virtual Event

June 19 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join AAMBC and our friends from the Pennsbury Manor to celebrate Juneteenth! This year, the annual celebration of freedom comes as the country grapples with its longstanding tradition of systemic racism, as well as the fate of its Confederate monuments, flags, and symbols amid nationwide protests against police brutality and racism following the death of George Floyd.

Although the holiday centers on the freedom of African Americans from slavery, Steve Williams, President of the National Juneteenth Observance Foundation, said “The message of Juneteenth is a positive unifying one

for all Americans. Juneteenth is a unifying holiday. It is the completion of the celebration of freedom in America."
