Juneteenth Celebration in White Plains
June 11 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us this Saturday at 11am as we honor Juneteenth, a holiday celebrated in June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.
