The Juneteenth Committee of Masjid Malcolm Shabazz is hosting the 2022 Juneteenth Celebration Parade and Street Fair on Saturday, June 18, in Harlem from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Festivities will start at 116th Street at Malcolm X Boulevard.
The Juneteenth holiday is Sunday, June 19, and commemorates the day in 1865 when slaves in Texas learned they were free. Slavery in the states in rebellion against the United States had been outlawed two and half years earlier by the Emancipation Proclamation, but the proclamation had no real effect until the end of the Civil War in 1865.
Call 212-662-2200/01 or email email@example.com for more information on the parade and festival.
