This year the Black Association of SLAC Employees (BASE) invites you to come and celebrate our 16th Annual Juneteenth Celebration.

Each year, BASE hosts this event celebrating the ending of slavery in this country as well as providing an opportunity for co-workers, friends and family to gather. Juneteenth celebrations began in Texas and Arkansas and are now celebrated nationwide.

The theme for this year honors Sam ‘Emanuel’ McDonald, a Stanford University employee for over 50 years, and other Afro-Americans that have made contributions to California. This event also honors our dearly departed SLAC employee and BASE member Clyde Barker.

Guests at this year’s event will enjoy a raffle, great food, music, a jumper for the kids and more!
