2021 STOCKTON JUNETEENTH HISTORIC WATERFRONT TOUR
Building on a strong living legacy, our unique Stockton Juneteenth "From Slavery to Freedom " Historic Waterfront Tour continues in a good way.
Safely, we plan our annual Stockton Juneteenth Waterfront Tour and Celebration.
The Port of Stockton, seat of San Joaquin County , remains a strategic epicenter of our collective past, present and future here in the Great State of California.
Juneteenth remains a very focal legacy where many communities nationwide have elevated the celebration to an official paid holiday and opportunity for the entire community to discover the salient contributions by people of Pan African ancestry here in Stockton, CA.
In 1994, June 19 became the agreed upon National Juneteenth Celebration of Freedom offering us very unique opportunity to recall the entire journey from enslavement as prisoners of war, through generations of bondage and the bloody battles of the US Civil War essential to secure the hard fought freedoms we enjoy today.
Freedom is never free, each generation is required to pay the price.
Everyone is invited to experience our unique expression of "forming a more perfect Union."
