Juneteenth Campus Closure

On Monday June 19, 2023, Community College of Denver will be closed to commemorate the last enslaved people gaining freedom.

In June of 1865, the United States Military arrived in Texas to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation signed two years earlier by Abraham Lincoln.

Juneteenth, the newest federal holiday to date, was first recognized on June 17, 2021, under President Joe Biden.
