[ARCHIVED] Voices of Freedom: Why should we celebrate Juneteenth? - Wednesday, June 19, 6-8 pm


Join us for a special musical presentation with Musical Mosaic.

Travel back in time to June 19th, 1865, the day General Gordon Granger arrived in Texas and told the people that the Civil War was over, and the enslaved were now free! That date became known as Juneteenth or Freedom Day!

So the question is: Why do we celebrate Juneteenth today? Through the uplifting  voices of  Musical Mosaic, and an ensemble of guest artists, we will explore that   question through song, dance,  and poetry from the past through the present. 

Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Proceeds support the museum.
