The purpose of the Salina Juneteenth Celebration Committee is to promote and cultivate knowledge and appreciation of African American history and culture. Juneteenth celebrates African American freedom while encouraging self-development and respect for all cultures. Juneteenth is taking on a more national and even global perspective. The future of Juneteenth looks bright as the number of cities and states come on board and form local committees and organizations to coordinate the activities. This national day of pride is growing.
Mission Statement: To bring the community together in a harmonious and spirit filled setting; while we promote, cultivate and appreciate African American history and culture.
