Queens Celebrates Juneteenth
June 19 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pmFree
Commemorating 156 years of Black Power on Juneteenth at Roy Wilkins Park since the last enslaved people in Galveston, TX were freed.
A sustainable and historic festival for the South East Queens community that highlights, celebrates and commemorates our Black Ancestors and their journey to liberation through Juneteenth. In partnership with community leaders, elected officials, community organizations, Black Greek life, public safety, parks, small businesses and more, the collective committee will execute Juneteenth’s worth remembering for years to come.
Assembly Bill A10628, sponsored and introduced by our very own @aliciahyndman State Assemblywoman Alicia Hyndman of the 29th Assembly District in June 2020 to finally have Juneteenth recognized as a New York State Holiday.
On October 14, 2020, this empowered bill was signed into law. 156 years later, in 2021 we will celebrate Black Power, and Liberation for the first time as a NYS Holiday on Juneteenth at Roy Wilkins Park!
