Juneteenth: Celebrating Freedom

0

The Black Professionals Network kicked off Juneteenth Freedom Week with a special edition Juneteenth mixer on Thursday, June 15th. South Florida’s leading professionals donned their best all black attire to network and celebrate the occasion in strength and unity. The celebration took place at North Miami’s Da Cave, a black-owned lounge and restaurant in the spirit of honoring Black entrepreneurship and community.

Professionals and entrepreneurs alike came together playing Juneteenth Bingo, getting to know each other while playing the game. Bingo prompts such as “attended an HBCU” and “works for a black owned organization” encouraged attendees to connect on a deeper cultural level. The mixer was an opportunity to honor the emancipation of enslaved African Americans and the beacon of strength and resilience Juneteenth represents.

Following the mixer, a weekend of Juneteenth related events commenced, ending with a pitch competition on Tuesday, June 20th with a $5,000 prize to the most innovative business idea. As the Juneteenth Freedom Week comes to a close, we hope that you have been able to reflect on the progress we have made, challenges we’ve overcome, and the victories that lie ahead.
