ABOUT THE EVENT
Juneteenth is here! Enjoy our many activities that embrace and celebrate the African American spirit, including special performances.

ON-GOING ACTIVITIES:

The oldest national commemoration of the ending of slavery, Juneteenth, truly celebrates freedom for all. On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers arrived in Galveston to inform enslaved African-Americans of their freedom, putting into effect the Emancipation Proclamation. Today, Juneteenth celebrates education, achievement and freedom. Celebrate this pivotal moment in American history!

When: From 9 am to 5 pm in New Kids Hall

Ministry in Motion w/Speed Painting by Ange Hillz: Welcome the praise dancers as they perform while artist Ange Hillz creates a beautiful art piece before the performance ends!
