Juneteenth 2022

Spotlight Headers 2

Juneteenth, short for June Nineteenth, marks the day back in 1865, when enslaved African Americans were freed, ending slavery. Because of this, it’s is also referred to as Jubilee Day, Freedom Day, Emancipation Day, and Black Independence Day. And what better day to celebrate African American history and culture, than Juneteenth?

We’ve gathered together Juneteenth Celebrations all across West TN, so  you can join in on the festivities!
