Org Jun Flag 01 XL

Juneteenth events in Atlanta are vibrant and diverse, capturing the essence of freedom and celebrating African American heritage and culture. The city comes alive with a myriad of activities that pay homage to the significance of June 19th, the day in 1865 when enslaved people in Texas finally learned of their emancipation, marking the end of slavery in the United States. Juneteenth in Atlanta serves as a powerful reminder of the progress made and the ongoing journey towards equality, fostering a sense of unity, and empowerment among its residents.
