About Us

Juneteenth or June 19th is the oldest known celebration commemorating the 1865 emancipation of the last enslaved people in the United States.

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. Across our country, the contributions of African Americans continue to enrich every facet of American life.

This Juneteenth, we pay tribute to the enduring and persevering spirits of African Americans. Our Celebration is a free community event and will include activities and resources, such as: Historical Awareness and Enactments Health Information to include Covid testing, Sickle Cell and more Local Non Profit Organizations Live Musical Performances Award Ceremony honoring key figures in the SC African American Community Retail Vendors Local Food Vendors Civic Engagement and Voter Registration Radio Stations: Kiss and The Big DM.

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. Which is why this event has grown from 40 attendees at our inaugural event to over 4,500 at last year’s festival and reaching more than 100,000 on social media. We are expected to continue the trend of growth in 2021.
