Brought to Kansas City in 1980 by Horace M Peterson III, founder of the Black Archives of Mid-America INC, Juneteenth is an annual heritage celebration and platform that celebrates the emancipation of enslaved Africans in America and provides the backdrop to pay tribute to the founders of our community.
Jackson County CASA participates in Juneteenth to celebrate Kansas City's African American heritage, to share information about CASA, and to invite attendees to consider becoming a CASA Volunteer.
