The first Juneteenth celebration to be held in Homer will take place at WKFL Park today.
Juneteenth honors the day news reached Texas that the Civil War was officially over and that those enslaved in America were free by law. That was 155 years ago and more than two year after the passing of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Peaceful demonstrations will continue at WKFL Park in Homer every day this week from 2 to 4 p.m. seeking racial justice in response to police violence against African Americans across the country.
    The demonstration, similar to thousands like it large and small around the world, was triggered by the killing of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man, by a Minneapolis Police officer while three other officers watched. It was caught on video and broadcast worldwide.
    Winter Marshall-Allen has organized the End White Silence Movement in Homer.
