From the perspective of the organizers of this event:
Brooklynn Ferrell, student organizer of Juneteenth Jubilee, “Juneteenth is important because it is a celebration for African Americans moving closer to freedom. This event highlights the achievements and advancements we have made as a culture. Attending the Jubilee helps you in learning about the history in a fun community setting.”
Les Reinhardt, executive director of Fishers Arts Council, "Working alongside these incredible student leaders, especially Brooklyn, is an inspiration. We are proud to support these students and the amazing event they create for the community year after year. They decide what will be offered, coordinate with the vendors and entertainment, create educational materials, and fundraise. It's really amazing to see the power of what our youth can make happen in Fishers."
