PRN Celebrates Juneteenth
June 19 | 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
PRN will present their Juneteenth Celebration, taking place at 2224 The Plaza on June 19th, and will feature Storytellers, Drumming, Vendors, Black Cowboys, Music, Food & Healthcare Screenings.
PRN is proud to bring this celebration of Juneteenth to Plaza Midwood for the first time. This celebration is in observance of June 19, 1865, the day that Texan slaves were informed of their freedom; two and a half years after the issuance of the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln. Later that same year, the 13th amendment was ratified, legally abolishing the slavery of persons except as punishment for crimes.
