June Teenth

Bowling Green’s second annual Juneteenth Freedom Celebration will be taking place on the Wooster Green next to First Presbyterian Church on Saturday, June 19 from 2-10pm. This day is also known as Freedom Day, Emancipation Day, Liberation Day or Jubilee Day and celebrates the emancipation of those who were enslaved in the United States. Although President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on September 22, 1862, a few southern states were still practicing slavery through 1865. Juneteenth commemorates the day on which Texas proclaimed the end of slavery in the state of Texas (June 19, 1865). B.R.A.V.E. (Black Rights, Activism, Visibility and Equity), the hosts of the event, have planned all sorts of cultural activities this year! Join us in celebrating and appreciating Black life, culture, experience.  FPC Bowling Green, Ohio is pleased to lend support. Contact the Outreach Committee (Christina Guenther cguenth@bgsu.edu ) if you would like to volunteer your time and/ or talents.
