The Juneteenth NY Organization was designed to celebrate and empower our community to look at the marvels of our creativity, ingenuity, and innovation as a people across the globe while educating others on how to change the narrative about Black history.
Umoha Events, founded by Athenia Rodney , was initially hired as a community planner with George Walker Jr. Organization to create the first Juneteenth celebration in East New York, Brooklyn in 2009. After the first two years as funds started to lessen for the George Walker Jr organization and the event started to grow, blessings were given to Umoja Events to carry on the celebration and was charged to keep making it bigger and better.
