Fourth Annual Farmington Area Juneteenth Celebration June 17-19
The fourth Annual Farmington Area Juneteenth Celebration is returning in-person to celebrate a bigger and more inclusive Juneteenth 2022 for the entire Juneteenth weekend. Everyone is invited to bring family and friends from across southeast Michigan. The first area Juneteenth event, begun in 2019 by Rev. John Burns, brought to the community the first Black-centered celebration. The theme is “UNTIL ALL OF US ARE FREE…” to commemorate the Emancipation Proclamation’s ending of slavery in the seceded states of the U.S. and to celebrate the joys of liberty, educate the community about our heritage and promote positive cultural interaction.
Celebrations dates are:
- June 17 (8:30-11:00 pm) Family Movie Night (outdoors)
- June 18 (12:00-6:00 pm) Juneteenth Celebration (outdoors)
- June 19 (3:00-4:30 pm) Interfaith Healing Service (indoors, church sanctuary)
This annual celebration will be at Nardin Park United Methodist Church
, 29887 W. Eleven Mile Rd., Farmington Hills
Farmington Area Juneteenth 2022 is a celebration of both the historical arrival of the Emancipation Proclamation in Texas (June 19, 1865) and the present struggle to bring racial equity to all, especially people of color. The theme, UNTIL ALL OF US ARE FREE… directs us to remember our highest ideals and values, proclaim the joys of liberty, recognize the achievements and resilience of Black and Brown people despite adversity, and re-commit to our shared ambition to cherish and protect freedom, especially in these times of high racial and gender-based tensions.
