In light of the current state of America, we are deciding to sell Juneteenth Shirts (scroll down for purchasing link, presale info, and pictures of the shirt) and donating the profits to the Jefferson County Memorial Project. This group will be researching the lynching victims of Birmingham, Alabama to shed light and educate the community (for more information on JCMP go to https://jeffersoncountymemorial.com/

Pick up Info

If you chose the pick-up option (and did NOT pay for shipping) you may pick up your shirts from our office 601 19th Street North Birmingham, AL 35205 (Neighborhood Housing Services Building) at the times listed below:

Wednesday June 17, 2020 12:00pm-9:00pm

Thursday June 18, 2020 9:00am-9:00pm

Friday June 19, 2020 9:00am-12:00pm

Why?

We are in a time where Black men and women are being targeted, arrested, and murdered based on skin color. This is not a new discovery. Last year we hosted a Juneteenth Festival to promote fellowship amongst the black community and allies and to spread the knowledge of the history of Juneteenth. Due to coronavirus, we were unable to have a festival this year but that should not stop the celebration or the spread of awareness and history of Juneteenth.

What is Juneteenth?

The oldest nationally commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Juneteenth, also known as the Juneteenth Independence or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolishment of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans throughout the former Confederacy of the southern United States.
