This year’s Memphis Juneteenth festival, which runs Friday through Sunday, celebrates the 100-year anniversary of the NAACP. The event is action-packed with live music, a health and job fair, exhibits, dancers, storytellers, basketball, softball, family reunions, class reunions, horseback riding, picnics, and food and merchandise vendors.
