This Saturday celebrates American freedom. The ancestors will be proud. Harlem will be moving and shaking with three events that include a family block party, a ribbon cutting and supporting Harlem businesses.
The weekend starts on Friday as Experience Harlem, the award-winning marketing solutions company, kicks off their 15th anniversary with a special summer Juneteenth edition of their Shop & Sip series, highlighting Harlem’s Black-owned businesses. “Harlem has long been recognized as the Black capital of the world, there’s no better way to celebrate Juneteenth weekend, kick off summer and the reopening of New York than to discover Harlem’s scores of Black entrepreneurs, small businesses, artists and artisans,” said founder Angie Hancock. Liz Osei, brand manager of sponsor Maker’s Mark added, “We know it’s been such challenging times....by supporting the SHOP HARLEM campaign, we hope we can make this summer a little more remarkable.” MORE
