About this Event
Juneteenth is a time to celebrate, to gather as a family, to reflect on the past and look to the future. We invite you to engage in your history, learn where you came from, and discover (or share) ways to celebrate this holiday. On this day we are bringing the Museum to you through presentations, stories, photographs, and recipes from the Sweet Home Café.   
  
We hope you join us for a Juneteenth Celebration to:  

  • Listen to Lift Every Voice and Sing sung by renowned vocalist Rochelle Rice  
  • Discover how to trace your ancestors in a workshop presented by the Robert F. Smith Explore Your Family History Center  
  • Enjoy presentations about the history and significance of Juneteenth  
  • Hear a tale that celebrates the wisdom of the elders as told by acclaimed storyteller Diane Macklin
