Because "We Are One", the City of Miami Gardens has invited to the stage special local acts to perform multiple musical selections that will highlight our successes, diversity and our unity.
Juneteenth, also known as Emancipation Day, Juneteenth Independence Day, and Black Independence Day, celebrates the end of the Civil War and slavery.
It was June 19, 1865, when Major General Gordon Granger traveled to Galveston, Texas and announced that the Civil War has ended, and all enslaved people were to be freed. Since then, communities have celebrated June 19 as the official day of Emancipation.
According to the United States Library of Congress, “communities have developed their own traditions. As families migrated from Texas to other parts of the United States, they carried the Juneteenth celebrations with them.”
