[*]  Valley of the Sun Juneteenth Celebration                                   June 3-8, June 15

#############################################

https://azifoundation.wixsite.com/phxjuneteenth

 

The Valley of the Sun Juneteenth Celebration is committed to the preservation

of the historic contributions of African Americans by promoting and cultivating

knowledge and appreciation of African American history and culture.

 

ABOUT THE CELEBRATION

The free event features fun for the entire family. The event features local known

musical performers mixed with community groups and schools. Other highlights

include live entertainment, free health screenings, educational workshops, youth

essay contest, children's activities, ethnic arts and crafts, vendors, games and the finest authentic soul food.

 

Eastlake Park, now Eastlake Park Community Center, opened in 1914 and provided

a gathering spot for local African American residents when Phoenix was segregated.

Juneteenth was originally held at Eastlake Park then moved to South Mountain Community College in 2004.

 

PURPOSE OF THE CELEBRATION

A city's quality of life is not measured by wide streets and shopping malls.

 It needs community events that bring people together in celebration.

 

This event is a celebration of the resilience of the African American people.

The celebration has come to symbolize for many African Americans what the

Fourth of July symbolizes for all Americans... freedom. Juneteenth is the oldest known event celebrating the ending of

 

the unique institution referred to as “slavery”

and beginning of what African Americans called Black Independence Day.

Juneteenth today celebrates African-American freedom while encouraging self-development and respect for all

 

cultures.

Special events like this impact the quality of life for all of Phoenix's citizen's young or old or in between.

Celebrating Juneteenth has been a Phoenix tradition since 1957.

In all, 181 Black organ donors have given the gift of life since 1988 in Arizona alone.

(Source: UNOS.org) They saved lives through organ and tissue donation.

 

On the other side of the coin, Dr. Dana Jamison received a living kidney donation from her husband, Alex Jamison.        

 

                                                                       

He saved her life so she could continue to heal others as an orthopedic surgeon.
