Save the date for Building Power for Black New Mexico's celebration of Juneteenth in Albuquerque!

Back on June 19, 1865, the Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas to alert our enslaved ancestors that the Civil War had ended and they were now free. The arrival of the Union soldiers was 2.5 years after President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. Today, the day of their arrival is referred to as Juneteenth and it's a holiday celebrated throughout the Black community in the United States.

Join us as we commemorate our history of struggle and the work still to be done for Black liberation. We'll be hosting a FREE family-friendly community event in the park with dynamic speakers, historical presentations, entertainment from local artists, a potluck style community feed, and a three on three basketball tournament. Join us!
