Known to some as the country's “second Independence Day,” Juneteenth celebrates the freedom of enslaved people in the United States at the end of the Civil War.
Juneteenth is here. We have several activities that embrace the spirit of Juneteenth, including book readings celebrating diversity, and special performances. Also, don't miss an appearance by Black Panther.
