Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, an important day in history when the last enslaved African Americans in the U.S. were freed. Juneteenth marks the day when freedom from slavery became a reality for all African Americans.

Valley residents are encouraged to take part in a two-day Juneteenth celebration at the Tempe History Museum on June 15 and 16. Both events are being held inside the museum, are free to attend and open to the public. Attendees will learn more about this historical day while honoring African American heritage through discussions, performances, displays and informational booths.
