Juneteenth Celebration embraces richness of African American history – The Owensboro Times

Juneteenth has been a celebration of freedom throughout the United States for over 150 years. In Kentucky, there are a handful of towns that still celebrate it. A determined group of Owensboro women knew it was time the community celebrated and embraced the richness of African American history.

The second annual Juneteenth Celebration will take place on June 22 from 4-10pm at Kendall-Perkins Park in Owensboro.
