Juneteenth 2021
Multnomah County Library and Multnomah County-Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) invite you to our Juneteenth celebration.

This will be a culturally rich space, where community members will have the opportunity to learn about the history of Juneteenth. There will also be live presentations on healthy eating, COVID-19 related information, and more!

Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th when Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas with news that the U.S. Civil War had ended, marking the end of slavery for African Americans in this country. Since then, June 19th or "Juneteenth" has been observed as a holiday, celebrating the end of slavery in America, and its meaning to the culturally resiliency of African Americans over the years.
