Hundreds turned out to celebrate Juneteenth on Tuesday, June 18, at Austin Community College District’s (ACC) Eastview Campus.

Hosted by the ACC’s African American Cultural Center in partnership with other college offices and programs, the communitywide Juneteenth celebration included live performances, games, dancing, a dunk tank, giveaways, community tables, local artists, and more. 

This annual event marks the announcement of the emancipation of slaves in Texas on June 19, 1865, over two years after President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.
