Juneteenth, organized by ExpectUS, had a lots of speakers and lots of dancing during the day that ran into evening on Tucker Boulevard in front of St. Louis City Hall.

South Tucker Blvd. and Market Street were completely blocked off by barricades and guarded by police. This created a huge party space and dance floor. There were hundreds, young and old, who took to the street to dance to their favorite songs.

Angel, an activist and community speaker, talked to the crowd about equality and the meaning of Juneteenth. Immediately following was the dancing and fun.

The stereo was so big it was on a flatbed truck that filled downtown with music and joy. Everyone had a wonderful time and will come next year since Juneteenth is now an annual downtown event.
