While Juneteenth observances are wrapping up, the Alaska Black Caucus is gearing up for several big events taking place in the next week, each of which is focused not so much on history or celebrations, but on the future of the Black community in Alaska and how to better serve it.
The festivities kicked off Monday morning featuring a parade circling downtown that had a variety of different floats painting an image of the diverse Anchorage community. Some of the floats included pageant participants, veterans, vintage vehicles and different cultural groups represented in the community.
