2nd Annual Juneteenth Celebration

Chatham Community Library, in partnership with Chatham Organizing for Racial Equity (CORE), is co-sponsoring the 2nd annual Juneteenth celebration on Saturday, June 22, 2019, from 10:45 AM - 6:00 PM at the Chatham Agricultural & Conference Center (192 US Hwy 64 Business, Pittsboro).  Doors open at 10:30 AM. 

Juneteenth increases understanding and unity concerning slavery and the historic efforts required to abolish it. It brings a strong sense of pride about the commitment that African Americans have made to the betterment of life for their children and grandchildren. The observance will also draw attention to modern-day slavery, such as unlawful child labor and human trafficking, and provide information on how we may work together as a community toward eliminating it.

This event is free and open to the public.
