The Juneteenth Freedom Celebration in Eugene Oregon

By Chandlor Henderson

Today I was fortunate to be able to attend and take photos at another bliggidy black event here in Eugene, Oregon. I tend to be naturally shy, and although I enjoy taking photos of people, it’s usually just me and them. This event took me out of my comfort zone, which can be scary. I found myself missing a lot of moments I really wish I had captured. I won’t beat myself up too much because even though I missed some golden media moments, these events are just something I need. I love seeing my people on stage, in this town especially. I look forward to doing this more often, but next time I’m getting all up close to the stage so I can get better shots. Believe that !!!
