Juneteenth - June 19, 2021

Juneteenth is now an official Federal holiday but communities across Los Angeles have long celebrated the day that Africans held in bondage in Texas learned of their freedom on June 19, 1865 – nearly three years after the President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. We’ve posted some information about celebrations around our city, including the newly re-opened Leimert Park, the traditional epicenter of Juneteenth joy.
