Kenneth Young Center and the CPYD Coalition present, “Juneteenth Celebration!” Come celebrate black culture with the Hanover Park community!
During Juneteenth, we celebrate those who came before us as well as those who made it through slavery and segregation. We also celebrate how far we’ve come, and empower ourselves to continue the work that they’ve started. This Juneteenth Celebration is seeking to educate the community on Juneteenth and to celebrate our achievements. This event seeks to be a safe and fun space to celebrate black culture.
Food and drinks will be provided. Social distancing and masks are encouraged.
- speakers including Tim McGowan, Michael Myers, and more,
- poetry and spoken word,
- bounce house,
- music with a DJ,
- Fathers’ Day celebration,
- and much more!
There will also be a mini resource fair featuring LGBTQ+ services, free rapid HIV testing, substance use prevention and recovery support, and more.
This event will be socially distanced, safe, and cost-free. We welcome people of all ages, including: students, youth, adults, families, community leaders, and others.
No matter where you live, everybody is welcomed!
