Celebrating Juneteenth: Book Selections by the Peachtree City Library

In honor of Juneteenth, the Peachtree City Library has curated a thoughtful selection of books to commemorate the historic occasion. Recognizing the significance of Juneteenth as the celebration of emancipation from slavery in the United States, the library aims to foster understanding, reflection, and dialogue among its patrons.

The library's Juneteenth collection encompasses a diverse range of literature, including memoirs, historical accounts, and fictional narratives. These works explore the African American experience, the struggle for freedom, and the triumphs and challenges faced by Black communities throughout history. Through these selections, the library seeks to amplify marginalized voices, promote empathy, and educate the public about the enduring legacy of slavery.

By prioritizing the recognition and celebration of Juneteenth, the Peachtree City Library continues its commitment to inclusivity, diversity, and the dissemination of knowledge. The curated selections serve as a testament to the library's dedication to promoting awareness and understanding of the struggles and achievements of African Americans in their journey towards freedom and equality.
