Join the North Portland Libary on the lawn as they celebrate Juneteenth with words and music under the skies.

Read more about the event.

On June 19, 1865, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, Union soldiers brought Texans the news that the Civil War had ended and that the enslaved were now free.

Juneteenth, the observance of that date, has become a national celebration of freedom.
