Algoma, WI, June 19, 2020: Juneteenth Celebration

Juneteenth Celebration Rally

406 Fremont Street, Algoma, WI – 4-8 P.M.

Just like last week! Come down and show your support for BLM! Bring a sign and have some fun writing uplifting messages on the sidewalk. I’ll be bringing the chalk and some water for people. Let’s show that Algoma cares for all of its residents and that racism and brutality wont be tolerated. Bring a mask and hand sanitizer if you feel you need them.

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, and Cel-Liberation Day, is an American holiday celebrated annually on June 19. It commemorates June 19, 1865, when Union general Gordon Granger read federal orders in Galveston, Texas, that all previously enslaved people in Texas were free.
