Juneteenth Festival 

When: Sat., June 19 2010
Phone: 475-7255

Here's a quick history lesson: 145 years ago, slaves in Galveston, Texas celebrated the news, albeit two and a half years late, that they were free people. Immediate jubilation ensued among the people and the date, June 19, was coined Juneteenth. The celebration continues nationwide every year on this date. Honor this important day in history with the Colorado Springs NAACP's It Takes a Village Juneteenth Festival from 10 to 5 today at Armstrong Quad at Colorado College (14 E. Cache la Poudre St., coloradospringsnaacp.org) Enjoy soul food, ethnic cuisine, cultural performances and booths from various Springs organizations. — Lea Shores
