Rise St. James Juneteenth Commemoration
Rise St. James is hosting their second Juneteenth Commemoration this Saturday, June 19 at 11am to honor our ancestors buried at the site currently occupied by Formosa Plastics, to celebrate their lives and to stand up against the petrochemical industry’s oppression of their descendants. They will be livestreaming the event on our Facebook page for remote participation. Lunch will be provided afterward at Rose’s Catering 10141 Frontage St. James, LA 70086. There will be door prizes as well as awards for participants in their Black history essay contest.
