Juneteenth Boston: Black Joy
Sat June 19 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Juneteenth is the celebration that the formerly enslaved had when finding out about emancipation. It was also a moment when they began thinking more deeply about social justice, civic dignity, and democracy. It is a celebration of political freedom, a holiday that has profound reach across races and cultures. Join us at Copley Square at noon and at Carson Beach at 3pm for food, music, culture, and information.
