Juneteenth Community Day

Join The Amistad Center for Arts & Culture and the Wadsworth for Juneteenth Family Day. Juneteenth—the oldest known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States—is a recognition of June 19, 1865, when the enslaved in Galveston, Texas first learned of their freedom, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

Festivities include live music from Lost Tribe, crafting, African drumming with Alvin Carter, Jr., storytelling by Andre Keitt, and Anne Cubberly’s famous giant puppets.
