The Omaha NAACP sponsors the Juneteenth Parade Celebration each year. Juneteenth marks the day when a quarter-million slaves in Texas first learned of their freedom.

Please attend Parade Orientation on either June 6 OR June 13 at Washington Branch Library from 6-7:30PM.
– NO PAYMENT, NO PARTICIPATION. NO EXCEPTIONS!
