You are Invited! BBLM’s 2nd Annual Juneteenth Celebration – Sunday, June 19
On behalf of Benicia Black Lives Matter (BBLM), the Juneteenth Planning Committee invites the Progressive Democrats of Benicia to enjoy BBLM’s 2nd Annual Juneteenth Festival, which is scheduled for 11 am to 5 pm on Sunday, June 19th, and set to take place at the Benicia Veterans Memorial Hall at 1150 First Street.
While the festival will be going on the whole day, there will be a presentation with a formal program from 1 to 2 to 2:30pm. As well as enjoying music, poetry, performances, and readings, we will also hear from guest speakers like Ms. Sharon Henry. We welcome you to join the audience for this very special program as the education we aim to provide within it is at the heart of this whole event as well a key element of BBLM’s mission.
Before and after the program, Black-owned businesses will be vending food and goods on the grounds of the Hall, and there will be live jazz music as well as a DJ, plus activities for children and ways to celebrate Father’s Day.
