Adeline Street, between Alcatraz and Ashby avenues.

With the scent of barbecue in the summer air, the gold and green of kinti cloth decorating the booths, those sweet tones of the Berkeley High Jazz Band and Pete Escovedo’s red hot salsa sounds, Berkeley will remember the freeing of the slaves at its annual Juneteenth celebration.

The festival specifically remembers the liberation of the Texas slaves, who didn’t get official word of emancipation until two and one-half years after Abraham Lincoln’s Jan. 1, 1863, Emancipation Proclamation.
