BALTIMORE — There have been Juneteenth activities around the country to honor the end of slavery.

The Baltimore Freedom Fest is happening from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Penn North is continuing the celebration tonight with a march against police brutality.

“I hope that we demand change, because that is how we will be able to move forward in our community and as a people. It’s great to rally. It’s great to protest. It’s great to hold up signs, but it’s even better when we change laws that impact us.”

Freedom Fest attendees marched to Druid Hill Park and will end the night with a “celebration of freedom” event.

The event includes black owned food trucks, youth poets, speakers and a live DJ.
