North Oakland Farmers’ Market Grand Reopening &
Juneteenth Community Celebration!
Where: 942 Stanford Ave., Oakland, CA 94608
When: Saturday, June 16th 10am-3pm

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. It marks the day that enslaved Africans in the United States were finally “free”, when the state of Texas eventually recognized the Emancipation Proclamation in 1865, two years after it was issued. But the struggle is far from over. Good health and economic self-sufficiency are vital for our communities to thrive and in many ways are the cornerstones to freedom.

Featuring: Featuring a community blessing by Luisah Teish, speeches by Pastor Johnny from Bethany Baptist Church, Charles Porter and Michele Lee, and live hip hop by SunRu, Markese, n' more. Including free pancake breakfast, cooking demos, live art, workshops, and a special indoor Tupac 41st Birthday Video Mash up, n' more...
