Upcoming Jun 19 2021 Juneteenth
Juneteenth, Emancipation Day, Freedom Day, whichever you call it, we're celebrating!
Juneteenth marks the anniversary of June 19, 1865, when Major General Gordon Granger read “General Order No. 3” in Galveston, Texas, declaring the liberation of those enslaved. Portland formal celebrations of Juneteenth are credited to Clara Peoples, the "Mother of Juneteenth" who started larger celebrations in 1945 while working at the Kaiser shipyard.
Join us virtually for the film festival highlighting the Black community in Portland.
THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS:
