NASHVILLE, TN — In commemoration of Juneteenth, the Brothers Roundtable is hosting a celebration at Parkwood Community Center on Saturday, June 19.

The Brothers Roundtable is a nonprofit organization that hosts community engagement, educational, civic, and entrepreneurship activities in targeted neighborhoods of Nashville.

Its initiators created the community for African American men and young men to get together once a month and clean targeted areas in North Nashville.

The organization’s upcoming event in celebration of Juneteenth will include music, foods, drinks, hayrides, games, and a bouncy house for children. The event will start from 12 p.m. until 6 p.m. The event will be open free for the public.

The Brothers Roundtable Juneteenth celebration is supported by community groups such as Dad’s Against Destruction, NISA, and Esquire Distinguished Gentlemen.

“We are not asking people to pay anything, we just want people to come with their minds and hearts open,” said Brothers Roundtable national Vice-chair Jonathan Mosley.

The nonprofit organization is currently focusing on the Parkwood neighborhood. The Brother Roundtable has been hosting monthly community cleanups since 2019 in the Parkwood area. Now the organization is coordinating with community leaders to build a playground in the Chesapeake neighborhood.

Since 2019 the Brother Roundtable has been growing. Recently the community has over 30 members and created a Memphis chapter. The community is growing with the aim to serve the community with social, civic, and career services. In the upcoming month of August 2021, the community plans to host a job fair at Parkwood Community Center.
