The Juneteenth flag is raised at a ceremony at MATC’s Downtown Campus. The red, white and blue flag with a bursting star is symbolic of the end of slavery in the United States.

MATC’s Downtown Campus had a flag-raising ceremony for Juneteenth Day outside of the S Building. 

The event included speeches, singing, spoken word and the announcement of the Black Excellence Leadership Alliance, a new employee affinity group. 

Margaret Henningson, who is known as the mother of Milwaukee Juneteenth, was the keynote speaker at the event.
