We celebrated Juneteenth at Austin Community College’s (ACC) Eastview Campus on Tuesday, June 18 along with hundreds of local residents. ACC’s African American Cultural Center hosted this annual event in partnership with other college offices and programs and Workforce Solutions Capital Area participated to share job search and training resources with the community.

This annual event commemorates the announcement of the emancipation of slaves in Texas on June 19, 1865—two-and-a-half years after President Abraham Lincoln’s official Emancipation Proclamation.
