Northwest University Observes Juneteenth

Northwest University Observes Juneteenth

Today Northwest University observes Juneteenth together with all freedom-loving Americans. This holiday remembers that the Emancipation of enslaved African Americans took over two years to go into effect. As patriotic Americans, we believe freedom for all and equality under the law must never be deferred. As Christians, we believe the most complete freedom comes from the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
