Juneteenth

June 19th is celebrated and commemorated in the United States as the anniversary of when enslaved persons in parts of Texas first learned of their liberation in 1865.  Juneteenth, as this annual event is named, is observed in Boston and all over our nation in a festive and poignant way with food, art, music, dance and remembrance of the history of slavery and freedom. 

This day of reflection resonates now more than ever as a confluence of pandemics disproportionately impacts communities of color in the United States.  People of all races, cultures and backgrounds can experience Juneteenth commemorations by attending virtual events hosted by some of Boston's most iconic museums and organizations or by visiting civic landmarks along Boston's Black Heritage Trail.
