Join 1871 for Juneteenth, an all inclusive event that focuses on the importance of this day and a conversation about bringing the Chicago community together to practice active allyship.

Juneteenth commemorates the date of the complete freeing of slaves took place, two years after the issued Emancipation Proclamation was signed in 1863. Recent events now give a new meaning to such a significant day in history. This event is all-inclusive and will feature various speakers and a musical act.
