Community members wanted to have a Juneteenth program in the historically Black community that still exists in Fayetteville. NWABH collaborated with another nonprofit group, Let's Talk NWA, and did just that. There was entertainment by BAANG, DJ music by HerSetHerSound, food and beverages, Fayetteville Fire Department brought a fire truck for the kids to explore, voter registration, raffle of about eight custom pairs of sneakers by collector Wendell Scurlock, the featured speaker was Airic Hughes of Visionari. We had a great turnout of people who had a great time, some of whom could walk to the event from their homes.
