Juneteenth freedom commemoration weekend planned

Richmond’s “Cultural Ambassador”, Elegba Folklore Society, has planned a series of free family events from June 14-16 to commemorate and celebrate Juneteenth, an annual day also known as Juneteenth National Freedom Day that remembers the impact of the slave trade in Virginia during the 246 years between 1619 and 1865.
