This year’s theme, “Celebrating the Black Press,” underlines the mission of recognizing those charged with chronicling stories. Other event sponsors include Morgan State University, Maryland’s leading historically Black college and university (HBCU).

Long before Juneteenth was declared a federal holiday in 2021, “Juneteenth National Independence Day,” commemorating the end of slavery in the United States, was celebrated nationwide.

This year, the Multicultural Center at the University of Nevada, Reno, has announced it will participate in the 36th Annual Juneteenth Festival at Rancho San Rafael Park.

Organized by the Northern Nevada Black Cultural Awareness Society (NNBCAS), this year’s theme is “Unity in Diversity: Honoring Our Shared Heritage,” emphasizing the celebration of our shared humanity and heritage.

California State University will be livestreaming its second biennial Juneteenth Symposium, designed to elevate the celebration and recognition of African American history and achievement while promoting and sustaining the anti-racism work underway across the CSU’s 23 campuses.

At Cal Poly Pomona, the Office of Inclusive Excellence, with support from the Kellogg Legacy Foundation, will present the Juneteenth Block Party & Celebration at the Bronco Commons and the Bronco Student Center. There will be free food, games, education, and entertainment.
