Can You Smell The Barbeque?

Juneteenth Day is one of our oldest (1865) national celebrations, commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. It was on June 19th that the Union soldiers landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.

Milwaukee Juneteenth Day history is steeped in tradition as one of the nation's largest celebrations--- begun after an employee of the Northcott Neighborhood House returned from a trip to Georgia in 1971 with news about the celebrations there.

mapdata.gif

King Library will be at the epicenter of Milwaukee's 38th annual Juneteenth Day . On Friday, June 19th, check out the delicious soul food, music, live African dance, and other festival favorites available all day long. (And don't miss the parade that kicks off the event.) The celebration is on King Drive, between Burleigh and Center Streets. It starts at 9:00am and shuts down at 6:00pm. Last year's attendance was estimated at 40,000.

King Library will be open, but the library parking lot and surrounding streets will not be available for parking. Stop in and say hello!
