Juneteenth Freedom March

A Celebration Honoring the Juneteenth Holiday

Join BLKMRKTCLT, DuragFest, It Ends Now, Heal Charlotte and many more, as we celebrate and observe the Juneteenth holiday featuring a speaking engagement and peaceful protest. Juneteenth is a holiday to honor the freedom of Black Americans from slavery; this event hopes to educate the Charlotte community and beyond about its importance and to continue effective means of action against racial injustice.
The Freedom March will be broken into two parts: A speaking engagement from 1PM-1:50PM and a peaceful protest from 1:50PM-3PM.
There will be entertainment and attendees are encouraged to wear durags and/or clothing that represents Black American and African heritage.
This event promotes social distancing. All attendees are encouraged to wear masks and take needed safety and health precautions.
