Oregon's first Juneteenth celebration was organized by Vanport shipyard worker Clara Peoples, who used to observe the historic day on shift breaks with her friends. Now in its 52nd year, the community joins together in the Clara Peoples Freedom Trail Parade to march down Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Avel Gordly, the first African American woman to be elected to the Oregon State Senate, will serve as the grand marshal. More details on a sure-to-be-stacked entertainment lineup will be released soon, but you can expect local vendors, delicious food, and non-stop grooves. by Shannon Lubetich
