(Special to The Dallas Examiner) – More than 20,000 people from across the nation and internationally are slated to attend the 2024 Juneteenth Unity Weekend Celebration, which was created to celebrate the brilliance and culture of Black people. An idea birthed by community leader, business executive and activist, the late Kirk Myers-Hill, the Juneteenth Unity Weekend Celebration is the official annual celebration for Black communities to come together and celebrate their contributions to both American and Black culture, liberation and community. CEO Tamara Stephney and COO Ahmad Goree are continuing that legacy.
