Plans for the Juneteenth holiday? 

The North Carolina African American Heritage Commission is excited to share events taking place across the state to commemorate Juneteenth.  

Also known as "Freedom Day," Juneteenth is a uniquely American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement that slavery would be abolished in Texas. North Carolina joins in the celebration of this National holiday and commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederacy.

We encourage you to check out the events below, and join in the celebration!
