Juneteenth Jubilee

Greetings,

Victor Company would like to invite you and your family, Church, Business, Non-profit, School, Greek organization, social club, Dance troop, Musical group, Everybody to the Juneteenth Jubilee! We will be celebrating the entire month and hold a parade in Downtown Raleigh on June 25th. We look forward to celebrating this holiday with you. This event is free to participants and parade viewers.

Our plan is to have an annual parade in downtown Raleigh each year. We believe it is incumbent on all of us to define how all Americans celebrate this holiday. Celebrating culture, history, music, foods, and of course freedom. On holidays like St. Patrick’s Day, people wear green on holidays such as the 4th of July the nation sets off fireworks. Now is the time to define how Juneteenth will be celebrated as a national holiday.

Childhood Homelessness

Holidays are not only about celebrating but, helping those who are less fortunate. As we celebrate Juneteenth lets also help raise awarness and put an end to childhood homelessness. During the pandemic this very vulnerable population faced even greater challenges. Those children who are unhoused need your support now more than ever before.

What is Juneteenth?

 

Juneteenth (officially Juneteenth National Independence Day and also known as Jubilee Day, Emancipation Day, Freedom Day, and Black Independence Day) is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. It is also often observed for celebrating African-American culture. Originating in Galveston, Texas, it has been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States since 1865. The day was recognized as a federal holiday on June 17, 2021, when President Joe Biden signed the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act into law. Juneteenth’s commemoration is on the anniversary date of the June 19, 1865, announcement of General Order No. 3 by Union Army general Gordon Granger, proclaiming freedom for enslaved people in Texas, which was the last state of the Confederacy with institutional slavery.

Lift every voice and sing

Song by J. Rosamond Johnson and James Weldon Johnson
  • Lift every voice and sing
  • Till earth and heaven ring
  • Ring with the harmonies of Liberty
  • Let our rejoicing rise
  • High as the listening skies
  • Let it resound loud as the rolling sea
  • Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us
  • Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us
  • Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
  • Let us march on till victory is won
  • Stony the road we trod
  • Bitter the chastening rod
  • Felt in the days when hope unborn had died
  • Yet with a steady beat
  • Have not our weary feet
  • Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
  • We have come over a way that with tears has been watered
  • We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered
  • Out from the gloomy past
  • Till now we stand at last
  • Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast
  • God of our weary years
  • God of our silent tears
  • Thou who has brought us thus far on the way
  • Thou who has by Thy might Led us into the light
  • Keep us forever in the path, we pray
  • Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee
  • Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee
  • Shadowed beneath Thy hand
  • May we forever stand
  • True to our God
  • True to our native land
