Join us for the Lubbock Juneteenth 2020 at 5&J (1106 5th St.) & the LHUCA Plaza! Due to COVID-19, we had to make large adjustments to this years celebration. With the current climate and situations going on in America that have happened this year, many members of the Lubbock community felt that we could not pass up celebrating our “freedom” day! This will be two blocks downtown filled with fun and celebration. At this event there will be food, music, activities for children, visual artists selling their artwork, t-shirts for sale, the Juneteenth Panel Discussion, and on display the We Here Black Women’s Art Collective group art exhibition, Contributions of the Black woman. If you are not registered to vote or need to reregister, Audriana Edwards will be registering eligible voters during the event.

Juneteenth Panel Discussion: Join us for an open discussion and conversation about the legacy, history, and importance of Juneteenth in Texas. We will be talking with Lubbock natives and residents, Danisha Lewis, Maceo Moore, Willie Turner, Alexis White, Leon Williams, and Nathaniel Wright. In this year’s community absence of celebrations of the holiday due to COVID-19, we will discuss the impact of the virus on the Black community, our memories of the holiday, and ways we will honor our ancestors.

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or the Black Fourth of July, is an American holiday that commemorates June 19th, 1865. This being the day of the final emancipation of the last remaining slaved Black Americans in the Confederate States of America.
