#SelamPhilly! And Happy Juneteenth! Be sure to celebrate and enforce recognition of the importance of this day as it is signed into legislation as an official state holiday in PA- joining at least 40 other states that have done so and keeping the fight going for national recognition!
For all our #PhillyFam, check out the many events happening to highlight this holiday across the city all week and month long (see tagged), with a highlight of @juneteenthphila's JUNETEENTH PARADE & FESTIVAL in WEST PHILLY this SATURDAY!
Join the huge procession down one of the city's most significant historic centers of black business, music, and culture of 52nd St as it is renamed in fitting honor to Muhammad Ali Way, and join us at Malcolm X Park as the parade turns into a music festival and continuing celebration of black culture, community, and the official recognition of this important holiday in the state of Pennsylvania!
