MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – On Saturday, many in Minneapolis celebrated Juneteenth, the day on which the slaves were set free.

Despite the rain, the celebration included live music and a cook out. It was a chance for the Minneapolis community, which is still surrounded by signs of the tornado that caused so much destruction in the city, to celebrate their culture and respect those who suffered under slavery.

For more on the celebration, see Dave Wertheimer’s excellent video above.
