Juneteenth

June 19

In the words of Angela Tate, Curator of African American Women’s History, for the Nation Museum of African American History and Culture:

“Juneteenth is a time to reflect. What does it mean to really celebrate our freedom? What does it mean to be free in moments where freedom is conditional, and freedom is always a challenge? Juneteenth is a moment to think about freedom being conditional freedom and it is something that we must continuously strive and fight for.”

The Marquette Food Co-op celebrates Juneteenth as an acknowledgement of the efforts and accomplishments towards African American freedom and the constant work towards achieving it.
