Juneteenth Celebration

The ASU Library is partnering with the Arizona Historical Society and the Black Family Genealogy and History Society to bring you the first Juneteenth Celebration at the Arizona Heritage Center in Phoenix/Tempe. Juneteenth is a day to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans and to celebrate African American culture. This event is our way of bringing communities together and talking about Arizona’s history through the stories of African American migration.

Join us on Sunday, June 19 from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Arizona Heritage Center (1300 N. College Ave., Tempe,  AZ 85281) as we enjoy live performances, educational tables; food and refreshments; and accomplished speakers. Featuring Neal Lester, Kareem Neal, Jessica Salow and Margaret Hangan.

Please register for this free event with the Arizona Historical Society.
