You are invited to celebrate Juneteenth at the South River Public Library!

Mayor Guindi will start the festivities by reading The Undefeated by Kwame Alexander. All children are invited to come dressed as what they would like to be when they grow up. We will enjoy refreshments that commemorate the significance of this important day and watch the multi-award winning film Hidden Figures in our Sivess Meeting Room.

This event is open to all. Children are welcome to attend with a parent.

Juneteenth began on June 19, 1865 in Texas. Although slavery was abolished in the United States when Congress passed 
the 13th Amendment on January 31, 1865; men, women, and children still labored under this system despite their owners' knowledge of their freedom. News of the Emancipation Proclamation reached them via General Gordon Granger after his arrival in Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1965. This day has been celebrated by African Americans since June 19, 1866 and was formally recognized as a Federal Holiday in 2021.
