JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION VIRTUAL 5K
On Friday, June 19th, 2020, join Fit, Black, and Educated, Inc. for our first Juneteenth Virtual 5k run/walk. This event commemorates June 19th, 1865, the date when the last remaining Black American slaves in the Confederacy were emancipated, effectively marking the end of chattel slavery in the United States. Join us from wherever you are to celebrate a new beginning and reflect on this historic day.
