CCAAL, Inc. and Garrison School Cultural Center In the News

Monday, May 22 2017

The celebration, Friday, June 23, 2017, 6:00 pm, includes a Soul Food Dinner and musical entertainment. Proceeds will benefit Garrison School Cultural Center and its work to preserve history, celebrate culture, and promote human relations.

President Abraham Lincoln signed on January 1, 1863 the Emancipation Proclamation that freed enslaved African Americans, but persons enslaved in Missouri did not learn of their freedom until January 11, 1865, and persons in Texas until June 19, 1865. Juneteenth celebrations began in Texas where it is an official holiday, but it is only one of a number of freedom day celebrations held on various dates commemorating the end of slavery across the country.

Table and individual sponsorships, from $50.00 to $500.00, for the
17th Annual Juneteenth Celebration in Kansas City’s Northland,
include a Soul Food Dinner and musical entertainment.
Proceeds will benefit Garrison School Cultural Center and its work to
preserve history, celebrate culture, and promote human relations.
