NNU Celebrates Juneteenth

June 18, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join Naperville Neighbors United to celebrate our first Juneteenth Celebration. We will have great speakers, performances, activities, and food! Bring your entire family! Entry is free!

On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas with the news that the Emancipation Proclamation meant that people suffering under the chains of enslavement in the Confederacy were liberated. While chattel slavery would not be completely abolished in the United States until the ratification of the 13th Amendment in December of that year, celebrations of the announcement in Galveston that year became annual and spread throughout the nation over the years, becoming known as “Juneteenth.”

Finally, in 2021, Juneteenth became a federally recognized holiday. Naperville is proud to host its first annual Juneteenth celebration this year, on June 18, 2022.
