Description

Join us as we Honor Juneteenth, considered the oldest celebration of the end of enslavement in the United States – and a newly-recognized official state holiday here in New York! We will spotlight the events, experiences, and people fundamental to our collective understanding and appreciation of freedom. The holiday is inspired by events that occurred on June 19, 1865, when Union troops brought the message of emancipation and the end of the Civil War to over 250,000 enslaved persons in Texas – more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. These messengers of freedom were met with shock and jubilation. 

GCV&M welcomes this opportunity to interpret the community and lives of Black Americans living in Western New York at the time of emancipation. The event will focus on everyday lives for these Americans – seeking to reunite with family members scattered across the country, establishing businesses, and building relationships. 

Join us for history, music, food, learning, reflection, and connecting with the past so that we may create a better future. 

Guest interpreters include:

  • Cheyney McKnight (Not Your Momma’s History)
  • David Shakes (North Star Players)
  • Almeta Whitis
  • Rev. James H. Evans
