Justice Vanguard, a local activist group, hosted its annual Juneteenth event yesterday at Lincoln Park in Los Altos. The event aimed to educate those unfamiliar with the history of the holiday — which just recently became nationally recognized — and raise funds for the group’s scholarship for Black students in the Mountain View–Los Altos Unified School District.
The event saw a variety of booths including wine tasting, poetry, music, education and merchandise booths, all of which helped fundraise for the $15,000 “Blackalaureate” scholarship.
Here are some of the memorable moments of the day.
