Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Today, it commemorates African American freedom and achievement while it also encourages continuous self-development. This year, FIU will offer programming and activities in observance of Juneteenth from June 14-19, 2021. For more details, please visit DEI.FIU.EDU/Juneteenth.
Culminating the week's festivities, on Saturday, June 19 from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m., the entire University community is invited to our inaugural Juneteenth Freedom Day celebration. Lawn chairs and mats are welcome as we gather at the Earlene and Albert Dotson Pavilion Lawn (MARC building at MMC). Umbrellas will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
