The William Faust Public Library of Westland will host a Junteenth celebration from 3 until 3 p.m. June 4.
Drs. Micala Evans and Imelda Hunt of the Eastern Michigan University Department of Africology and African American Studies will share the reason for the recognition of Juneteenth as a federal holiday, and the importance for people of every background to celebrate Juneteenth.
This artistic and historical presentation will include an introduction to Juneteenth, and provide a description of the shackles and obstacles that bonded people as property and upheld a system of racism and negative stereotypes.
