Needham Reflects on Juneteenth

• Needham held its first observance of Juneteenth with remarks from local, state, and federal officials.

The holiday has only just been recognized as a federal holiday, but its roots run deep in American History. At the Needham Town Common, residents and officials gathered to kick off a new tradition, reflecting on the meaning of the holiday, and what it means for us locally and for people across the nation.
