Our annual Juneteenth: Words along the Way celebration is happening Sunday, June 16, at 3:00 p.m. Enjoy a performance by PassinArt: a Theatre Company to commemorate the Emancipation Proclamation arriving in Texas.

On June 19, 1865, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, Union soldiers brought Texans the news that the Civil War had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Juneteenth, the observance of that date, has become a national celebration of freedom. Join us at the North Portland Library as we celebrate Juneteenth with words and music.
