Juneteenth in San Francisco meant carnival rides, watching horses travel down Fillmore Street, getting dressed in your best attire, and coming together to see people perform on stage with live music. It meant gathering around family and friends to witness all the magnificent things in celebration of what we call Freedom Day. It was a day to celebrate the contributions Black San Franciscans have made to the City we all know and love.
