This Saturday, June 19th,join the Green Party of Philadelphia (GPOP) for a Juneteenth event at Malcolm X Park, 51st and Pine. We will join in other, related activities going on in the park, including a march beginning at 9 AM, at 52nd and Haverford, an Art in the Park exhibit, live music, and more (see here). The GPOP event will start in the park at 11 AM (see here). We will meet as near as we can get to the SE corner of the park pavilion--but--just look out for the Green Party banner. We will have food, drinks, discussion, and socializing; bring something to share--or just bring yourself! All (including children) welcome!!
As Juneteenth gets designated an official holiday, it has also been appropriated and commercialized. See the article here by Green Party and Black Alliance for Peace activist Margaret Kimberley in Black Agenda Report, on "How Not to Celebrate Juneteenth"!
