Thank You to EVERYONE that supported
Indy Juneteenth 2022 Celebration Info Coming Very Soon!!!!
Indy Juneteenth is a nonprofit organization started by James and Twjonia Webb. Our mission is to improve the quality and narrative of life around the black community in the Indianapolis area by creating avenues for celebration, mentoring, and economic growth through unique events and programs designed to celebrate and educate regarding the Juneteenth holiday and other under-served Black American holidays.
Indy Juneteenth is also dedicated to raising the value of the community through youth development and mentoring as a tool to create greater value in the future of our society. Ultimately, we at Indy Juneteenth are servants to our community!!!
"By teaching one how valuable their culture is, you are teaching them to look at themselves more valuable. If one looks at himself with value, then they will look at where they come from, and the people from where they are from, as something to value!" - James Webb (Executive Director)
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, TX with news that the war ended and that the enslaved were now free.

America's true Independence Day. And even though African Americans still fight for equality and justice today, we use Juneteenth as a benchmark to remind us of our ancestors and that freedom for all is a God given right to all human beings.
