Come celebrate Juneteenth with us, with a family fun day! On June 19, 1865, two years after Abraham Lincoln delivered the Emancipation Proclamation, soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas ordering slave holding Texans to comply with the freeing of enslaved Americans. Thus Juneteenth was born! What to expect: Storytime with Mayor Davis, Crafts with Westobou, a performance by Jessye Norman School of the Arts, a Lecture with Lucy Craft, Laney Museum of Black History and tours of the Museum. If you have any questions please contact the Education Manager at 706-722-8454 or e-mail education@augustamuseum.org
