Juneteenth Weekend

Looking for a way to celebrate Juneteenth? Our neighbors at Buffalo Soldier National Museum, Houston Museum of African American Culture, and Rice University are hosting in-person and online events to commemorate the day in 1865 when Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas to inform enslaved African Americans about their emancipation, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation passed.
