JuneteenthKC Parade 2k18

June 2, 2018

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved we're now free. Royale Boy Blue was the youngest participant to be involved in such a empowering expression of Passport to Freedom. He represented the empowerment of youth entrepreneurship that's being cultivated in the Kansas City area and surrounding communities by the inclusion of fellow youth in business. From start to finish, the float decorating dedication was all worth the long hours once the parade begin from Grove Park to 18th Vine. Over 50 parade black businesses, organizations, school districts, and clubs showcased their excellence to the city. With more events ahead, the community is sure to embark on more memorable moments of black power!
