On Saturday, June 17th, 2023, join Fit, Black, and Educated, Inc. for our annual Juneteenth Celebration Virtual 5k run/walk/bike. This event commemorates June 19th, 1865, the date when Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, and issued General Order No. 3, which informed the people of Texas that all enslaved people were now free. This announcement came nearly two and half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. General Granger's reading of effectively marked the end of chattel slavery in the United States. Join us from wherever you are to celebrate a new beginning and reflect on this historic day.
