Juneteenth Programming Begins this Week in Auburn


The first event as part of Auburn’s month long Juneteenth celebration begins this week.

“Black Thought, Voices, and Action,” a free film and discussion series, will take place at the Seymour Library beginning Thursday with the movie Moments Without Proper Names about photographer, writer, and director Gordon Parks.

Following the screening there will be a discussion facilitated by William Berry Junior.

While Juneteenth is celebrated on the 19th, events and programming are scheduled to run throughout the entire month in Auburn. Events include free family portraits for African Americans at the Schweinfurth Art Center, a walking tour of historic Fort Hill Cemetery, and an evening with activist and author Angela Davis at Auburn Junior High School. A full list of programs and events can be found on the Equal Rights Heritage Center’s website.

Juneteenth became a federal holiday in 2021.
