Juneteenth

Lehigh County will now officially recognize Juneteenth as a paid holiday for workers. But the move to give employees the day off to honor African American independence from slavery was met with some opposition

Allentown residents commemorated Juneteeth with a flag raising ceremony today. It was originally set to be at city hall but organizers said they wanted to have it somewhere else in the community – a local high school.
