“Juneteenth is the most popular annual celebration of emancipation from slavery in the United States. This is a significant, important event in our country that first occurred on June 19, 1865, in Galveston, Texas. We need, as a nation, to celebrate this wonderful event by making Juneteenth a National Holiday. Just as we celebrate the 4th of July as our nation's freedom from England, let us also, as a nation, celebrate the freedom of enslaved Black people. A Black Lives Matter vigil is held every Wednesday in Chapman Park from noon to 1pm.  All are welcome to stand with us as we seek to change the culture of white supremacy.” Susan Manning
