Juneteenth Jubilee Block Party and Afterglow

2019

In 2019, a zealous group of Detroit community members came together to form Juneteenth Jubilee Detroit. In tandem with the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, we created the Juneteenth Jubilee Block Party and Afterglow Benefit. The 2019 Juneteenth Jubilee events attracted more than 2,500 youth, parents, and supporters in an all-day celebration.

Juneteenth Jubilee Stroll 
on the Historic Avenue of Fashion

2021

For Juneteenth 2021 we commemorated an important time in American history with the Juneteenth Jubilee Stroll, along Livernois Ave in Detroit (The Avenue of  Fashion). Thus attracting 4,000 participants throughout this year’s festivities. Our committee and local partners held a prayer vigil at New Prospect Missionary Baptist Church, unveiled the newly dedicated Marvin Gaye Avenue, and organized a unique shopping experience in one of the country’s oldest Black business districts. Together, we accomplished our mission of increasing awareness and participation in commemorating Juneteenth in Detroit through Education, Activation, and Celebration.
