Juneteenth

Saturday, June 19, 2021

June 19th, 1865 is the date when 250,000 enslaved people were freed from bondage 2 1/2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation took effect. This year, the City of Bowie is marking the day virtually with a proclamation, a video message about Juneteenth, and a Read Aloud book for children.
