Durham and Orange Counties
CEF is excited about all of the #Juneteenth celebrations coming up! Juneteenth is a celebration of African American Emancipation and a time to pay homage to those that have forged the path towards freedom. As an organization that recognizes the detrimental impacts of systemic racism on Black and Brown members of our communities this is an important holiday for us to reflect on our victories. If you would like to spend time with CEF community in celebration of Juneteenth, we will be attending the Art of Freedom – Juneteenth Exhibit – Third Friday Opening Reception at 6:00 PM June 17th. We will gather at the CEF Durham Office at 4:30 to eat and carpool, leaving at 5:30 for Golden Belt Campus (800 Taylor St). Check out what’s going on:
