This month we commemorate Juneteenth, and the belated emancipation it brought to our people enslaved in Texas, two years after the passage of the Emancipation Proclamation.
We honor those who continued to push for liberation, albeit delayed, until all were free. In celebration of them, and our ancestors, we herald their resilience, and draw from them the inspiration to keep pushing until all are released from the bondage of generational poverty.
Join Grandmothers Against Gun Violence as we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr at an event on Thursday, April 5, from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Northwest African American Museum, 2300 S. Massachusetts Street, Seattle.
Special guest speakers include interim Seattle police chief Carmen Best. There will be light refreshments, exhibits and music. The event is free, but please RVSP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
