  • Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. On June 19, 1865, Union Army Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas, to announce that all enslaved people were free. This year marks the fourth that Juneteenth is a federal holiday, although Memphians have hosted organized celebrations for decades.
  • June is National Homeownership Month, and we’re lifting up the Alcy Ball Development Corporation, or ABDC.
