Marchers marched past East Central Community Center where a farewell and retirement dinner for Chuck and Evelyn Anderton occurred. Two celebrations Juneteenth. One struggled for emancipation. The other celebrated emancipation from the job and escape from Spokane’s plantation. Enjoy your Retirement!

On the eve of the Juneteenth march some of the Black religious community gave awards and had a catfish dinner.  Excess catfish was sold to marchers at the BBQ concluding the rally, march and protest.

There’s a guy, totally disruptive, throwing punches, we’re not allowed to punch back anymore. I love the old days.”                                                                                          -Trump
