The jubilee featured food and games, including black history trivia. Singers, dancers and many more performed in a talent showcase.

“It’s very important to unify just the whole community,” said LeeAaron Burks, an organizer with the Black Leaders Movement. “Just to get back to healing, get back to being strong together, and just coming together, and for Black lives the movement, and for everyone out here to have a good time.”

Leaders of the event told Channel 8 that because of the success and support from locals, they plan on holding more events in the future.
