Mizzou celebrates Juneteenth with CoMo
To mark the second federally-recognized Juneteenth holiday, Mizzou (which will be closed today to mark the holiday) took part in a city-wide celebration. A number of school officials joined together with members of the Mizzou Football and Hoops programs at Douglass Park for the city’s block party.
