Albertsons African American Leadership Council Commemorates Juneteenth

Jun 21, 2024 10:30 AM ET

Juneteenth is a time to celebrate, reflect, and serve. That's what our Albertsons African American Leadership Council (AAALC) ARG did this year by participating in different events in Dallas, TX, that commemorated the historical and cultural significance of the day and the resilience and contributions of the African American community. Our AAALC enjoyed activities including: 

- A panel discussion featuring Dr. Marvin Dulaney from the African American Museum of Dallas, who shared his insights and expertise on the history and impact of Juneteenth and the Reconstruction Era. 

- A Family Reunion BBQ at our Plano Office, where our team enjoyed a celebration filled with music, food, Black Line Dancing lessons and connection with colleagues and friends. 

- A donation drive to support the Boys and Girls Club in Plano, TX, where the team provided food, drinks, and ice cream for the children and staff. Our AAALC members delighted in seeing the smiles on the children’s faces and making their celebration enjoyable and memorable. 

- A day of service at the African American Museum of Dallas and Opal’s National Walk of Freedom, where the team volunteered to help with various tasks and joined the walk to honor the legacy of Juneteenth and the freedom fighters who paved the way. 

We are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate, reflect, and serve on this important day. We thank all our AAALC members for coming together as one team to give back to our communities and celebrate. Happy Juneteenth!
