Juneteenth

June 19th, 2024 5-8 pm

Location: Northwest Michigan College 

Come join Northern Michigan E3’s annual Juneteenth event. This important event marks the date enslaved African Americans were finally liberated in Galveston Island, TX. Their freedom came two years after the Emancipation Proclamation named all formerly enslaved people in the US “forever free.” Today, communities gather each year on June 19th in celebration, remembrance, and an affirmation of the continued journey. E3 recognizes the need to celebrate but also that the journey is far from complete. Join us for a program, food, music, and much more! 2024 marks the fifth year of E3’s Juneteenth event and the third year of partnering with NMC!
