14th Annual Juneteenth Celebration in Albany, NY
The African American Cultural Center of the Capital Region is proud to present the 14th Annual Juneteenth Celebration. Juneteenth is considered the date when the last slaves in America were freed. It symbolizes the end of slavery. Juneteenth has come to symbolize for many African-Americans what the Fourth of July symbolizes for all Americans-Freedom. It serves as a historical milestone reminding Americans of the triumph of the human spirit over the cruelty of slavery.
Albany’s Juneteenth celebration will be held in the community this year in and around the grounds of the AACCCR. “It’s a Street Festival” featuring music, entertainment, activities for all ages, local not for profit organizations, and an array of vendors selling their crafts. Attendees will enjoy a fun filled, educational day celebrating this historic occasion.
