For more than a century and a half the country has celebrated June 19th-“Juneteenth”-as a symbol of freedom achieved and a fuller freedom yet to come. On Tuesday, June 19, at 7:00 PM, at The Riverside Church in New York City, community leaders will gather to commemorate Juneteenth with an exciting program on their Fourth Annual Juneteenth Celebration.
This Juneteenth celebration gathers our community to reflect on the 50th anniversary year of Dr. King’s assassination, as well as renew our commitment to “The Fierce Urgency for Justice Now” for all God’s children. In the spirit of the first Juneteenth celebrations in Texas in 1865, our celebration includes music, dance and of course a message challenging us to continue our efforts to become “a more perfect Union.”
