The SC Juneteenth Freedom Fest
There is no more powerful force than a people steeped in their history...
And there is no higher cause than
honoring our struggle and ancestors by remembering.
Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America.
Juneteenth commemorates and emphasizes education, freedom, and the overall achievement of African Americans.
It is a time for reflection and rejoicing.
It is a time for community assessment, self-improvement, and planning for the future.
It serves as a celebration of the progress attained by generations of fighting for freedoms and rights; it also serves as a reminder of the work yet to come that will be necessary in order to ensure a brighter, more equitable world for all children and future generations.
