Join us as we celebrate Juneteenth. In 2008, Vermont became the 29th state in the nation to recognize Juneteenth as a state holiday. Juneteenth is the oldest of African American holidays and commemorates the delayed notification (on June 19, 1865) of the Emancipation Proclamation (January 1863). The Vermont Proclamation designates the third Saturday of June as State Juneteenth Day.

Activities include:

• Poetry & History Readings
• Performances and Celebration in Music
• Special Presentation: Vermont Constitution and Slavery
• Honoring Roy and Shirley Hill for their Juneteenth Contribution
• Special Guest: The Honorable Governor Jim Douglas

Alliance for Community Media says FCC Cable Vote Will Harm Local Media

The proposed rules would allow cable companies to assign market values to these benefits and then charge the amount back to local communities in most cases. Benefits include items like free cable subscriptions to schools, discounts for the elderly, and fiber connectivity to local government buildings like police departments, fire stations, and libraries.
