1st Annual Save-A-Seed Juneteeth Celebration 2020
Save-A-Seed has always been a champion of equal rights and an organization focused on sharing knowledge with our supporters and community through meaningful events and communications.
This year we were ecstatic to join many fellow Americans in honoring Juneteenth--also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, Emancipation Day and Black Independence Day.
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the emancipation, or ending of slavery, in the United States. It dates back to June 19, 1865 when Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas with news that the Civil War had ended and that the enslaved, namely African Americans were now free.
This year we were able to join the Galveston Historical Foundation in honoring the historical events by livestreaming their 41st Annual Al Edwards' Juneteenth Celebration as well as hosting our 1st Annual Save-A-Seed Juneteenth event.
