"What is Juneteenth?"
Juneteenth is a national holiday celebrating the abolishment of slavery. It originated in Galveston, Texas in 1865 on June 19th. Federal troops arrived and declared that all slaves be freed. This happened nearly three years later after the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed. Throughout this process the export of slaves from Africa to the United States ended.
Join BeKind Detroit for an evening of sustainable empowerment, sustainable shopping, and a showing of the short film Catwalk to Creation: a series of short films following the journey of garments. Filmmakers Charney Magri, and Ramzi Moutran look at the impact of fashion and hear from those who are working for a different kind of fashion industry.
What: BeKind Detroit X Fashion Revolution Week
When: April 23 @ 5PM
Where: The Rust Belt Market in Ferndale
