You are invited to join the pastor and congregation of Hall Memorial Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, Saturday, June 20, 2009, at 7 P.M., for our 2nd Annual Juneteenth Banquet.
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.
From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of Juneteenth as the African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and beyond. Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement.
Join us as we celebrate with praise, song, dinner, and documentaries the journey from our past to the present.
This occasion will enlighten, educate, and inspire.
