B. H. Brilliant Minds proudly organizes the
Oakland Juneteenth Annual Festival and Celebration
We will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary
SATURDAY, JUNE 24TH, 2017!
Juneteenth is a holiday that commemorates the declaration of the end of de jure slavery to the enslaved Africans in Texas. The theme of this year’s 10th Anniversary Oakland Juneteenth Festival is “Building on the Unbroken & Unbowed Backs and Shoulders of Our Ancestors.” Activities and program will include line dancing, live performances, drumming, singing, poetry and spoken word. The day will celebrate Black pride and liberation and will culminate in a community awards ceremony honoring unsung community leaders who have promoted harmony and pride for Black people living in Oakland.
Many volunteer opportunities are available. Consider hosting a booth, helping with security and clean up.
We also welcome local authors, artists, small businesses, organizations and food vendors.
With a multi-stage environment, entertainers are especially welcome.
Your donations are essential to the success of Juneteenth. Donations of any size may be sent by mail.
