For more than 25 years, the Duluth Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has partnered with community members and local businesses to honor Juneteenth.
2022 marks the first year Juneteenth is a recognized Federal holiday.
This holiday weekend, take the time to reflect and honor and lift up those who have been a part of the Twin Ports Juneteenth celebrations in the past. We encourage you to spend this Juneteenth weekend – Friday, Saturday, Sunday with your family to dig deeper, talk about your own ancestry, and learn about others. Research, discuss, understand what Juneteenth is all about. Volunteer. Get rooted. Join the celebrations.
It is time to make a commitment change.
Juneteenth celebrations in the Twin Ports will begin Friday, June 17 and extend through Sunday, June 19.
