Saturday, June 19th
The community is invited to join in the Juneteenth Celebration on June 19th from Noon to 7 pm at the Central Hillside Community Center at 12 E 4th St, Duluth. Juneteenth is a holiday that celebrates the Emancipation of African Americans from slavery but has come to signify a Freedom Jubilee for people of all ethnic and cultural heritages. It is celebrated in June, the month that the last African Americans were informed of their Emancipation after the end of the Civil War. This year, the Duluth Juneteenth celebration will include a health fair, children's activities and a variety of vendors and community groups. Musical acts will include Voices of Vision, directed by Gabe Green.

The African American Men's Group will be serving a free lunch for the community. If you are interested in more information or having a table at the event, contact Brendan Hanschen at bhanschen@nhsduluth.org (218) 727-8604 ext.19 or Claudie
