The 2022 4-day Juneteenth weekend theme centers good health in the Black community with specific focus on the good health of Black Men. We have a great opportunity to enroll many Black fathers and father figures throughout the Ithaca community. We want to be sure that Black Fathers know and experience this event as one that honors and centers around their health. Everyone is welcome to join us & spread the word to various local Black fathers.

about Juneteenth

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of African/European enslavement in the United States. Juneteenth acknowledges the history of Black Americans discovering truths and fallacies about freedom in this country. This celebration provides an opportunity to uncover, reflect, teach, set goals, and bring visibility to not only progress, but also existing untruths and fallacies that remain about freedom for Black Americans.  

 Southside Community Center has been hosting Ithaca’s Juneteenth celebration for many years to emphasize education, achievement, and community! All of Ithaca’s community are invited to attend and enjoy an educational experience with great food, live music, children's activities, a raffle with prizes from dozens of local businesses, and unique vendors. Representatives from local community organizations will share information and resources.
