Hennepin County Library Juneteenth virtual celebrations!

Celebrate this significant moment in African American history at an all-ages online community event! Enjoy powerful stories, performances, rhythms and songs. Celebrate on Sunday, June 14 from 2-4 p.m. and Tuesday, June 16 from 6-8 p.m. Juneteenth honors families reuniting, just as our ancestors took their freedom and reconnected with lost relatives. During this time of physical distancing, Juneteenth celebrations still bring us closer together. Performers include Voice of Culture Drum and Dance, Million Artist Movement, Black Storytellers Alliance, Neverending Storycircle, Journey Productions, Passed Presents and Black Table Arts. Funded by Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. The link to watch the events online will be posted at least 24 hours in advance of each event, visit
