Juneteenth commemorates the effective end of slavery in the United States. Juneteenth (short for “June Nineteenth”) marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people were freed.
Hoover-AHEAD annually sponsors a Juneteenth Celebration in Hoover. There are educational events, entertainment, food trucks, and more—and it is all family-friendly. Everyone is invited to join us for this exciting and growing event.
