Seaside Juneteeth, June 19, Laguna Grande Park

Melanie Wong | Jun 19, 202109:21 AM    

"Monterey Peninsula College UMOJA and A2MEND are co-sponsoring Seaside's Juneteenth Celebration on June 19, starting at 1:00 pm at Laguna Grande Park

Juneteenth celebrates African-American's claim to their rights as citizens, despite all opposition and obstacles. This family-focused, FREE celebration will include programming for the entire family. It will celebrate freedom, honor Black history, and build community with entertainment, food, music, and speakers.

UMOJA will be hosting an informational table AND providing on-site support."

Note that while this particular event is publicized on the Juneteenth Coalition's site https://juneteenthcoalition.org/ , it has different organizers and sponsors. The Coalition has become infamous in recent days for its event, "Anguish of the Elders" http://events.r20.constantcontact.com... that would have participants act out being enslaved plantation labor. With the uproar and protests from the community, the farm withdrew its site and the event was cancelled by the organizers without apology.
