Twin Cities Juneteenth Celebration Turns 25

The 25th annual Twin Cities’ Juneteenth celebration brought thousands to North Mississippi Regional Park Saturday. Juneteenth commemorates the day Union Soldiers told slaves in Texas that the Civil War had ended and they were no longer enslaved. Juneteenth is much more than parades, barbeques and family reunions.
