San Diego Melanin presents the Juneteenth Block Party!

Juneteenth is a holiday to commemorate the end of the Civil War, specifically Major General Gordon Granger’s Order Number 3, as proclaimed on June 19, 1865, in Galveston, Texas.

This martial order was given to enforce the conditions of President Lincoln’s 1862 Emancipation Proclamation; as some 250,000 were still enslaved in Texas. Juneteenth “Independence Day” is celebrated in 43 states and Washington, DC.

Vendors wanted! Email sandiegomelanin@gmail.com if interested.
