Juneteenth-in-Berkeley began to promote community pride, and bring together South Berkeley businesses and residents in the celebration of a major African American cultural event, culminating in the first annual Festival in 1987. With the establishment of Berkeley Juneteenth Cultural Celebrations in 2014, the organization began producing Black History Month celebrations during the month of February. Berkeley Juneteenth is committed to educating future generations about the history and accomplishments of African Americans, creating programming which highlights our music and culture, and acknowledging people and events that have brought us as a community and a nation a mighty long way.
