Virtual College of Lake County Virtual Juneteenth Celebration
06/18/2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This virtual event will be broadcast via Facebook Live from the College of Lake County – Multicultural Student Center Facebook page. Join us on June 18 at 2 p.m. for speeches, videos, musical performances and more.
Juneteenth celebrates the legacy of June 19, 1865, when all of the enslaved people were freed when Union Soldiers came to Gavelston Texas and announced their freedom.
This event will be a celebration as well as an opportunity for the community to learn about the heritage of Juneteenth, to recognize the significant contributions and talents of the Black students, staff, and faculty of the College of Lake County, and to learn ways to take action toward Racial Justice in our community.
