“Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of African-American slaves. It is also often observed for celebrating African-American culture. Originating in Galveston, Texas, it has been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States since 1865.”
The TybeeMLK Juneteenth Celebration will be held for two days and is a family friendly event for all. On June 19th there will also be a Wade In led by Patt Gunn on the Beach giving acknowledgment to our ancestors who came from Africa and the sacrifices they made. It is a way of giving back and honoring through cleansing, drumming and storytelling. This will take place at 9am on the pier.
