Celebrate Juneteenth in the South Bay  

Juneteenth is Monday, June 19, and we have a roundup of South Bay celebrations you won’t want to miss.  

Juneteenth, otherwise known as Emancipation Day or Freedom Day, is a significant commemoration in American history. Marking the emancipation of enslaved African Americans, Juneteenth serves as a powerful symbol of liberation and progress.
