Ebony Vision's 12th Annual Juneteenth Celebration

Saturday, June 20, 2020

Join in the Celebration of Freedom and Unity, as we teach the importance of cultural diversity as well as fun for the entire family and a day filled with remembrance and celebration, face painting, games, activities for the kids, vendors, live entertainment, and some delicious food.

Juneteenth is a historical celebration that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans throughout the former Confederacy of the southern United States.  Vice President of Ebony Vision, Kyonna Henry, state "African Americans call this holiday the black Independence Day and the day we gained our freedom. Many people think slaves were set free with the Emancipation Proclamation but slaves had no clue the Emancipation Proclamation even happened until 6 months later when General Granger went to Galveston Texas with his troops and read General Order number 3 declaring no more slavery. Formally enslaved people rejoiced in the streets and since then it has been known as Juneteenth." There will be a soul food booth, activities for the children, numerous vendors, a DJ, live band, basketball tournament, raffles, door prizes and an all-around celebration of freedom. 


This will be Ebony Vision's 12th Annual JUNETEENTH Celebration! This historical event has FREE admission.
