Join McNay Art Museum educators for a participatory art break in collaboration with San Antonio African American Community Archive & Museum. Juneteenth is an annual holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. On June 19, 1865, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued, enslaved African Americans in Galveston, Texas learned of their freedom. Today, the holiday is a celebration of Black history and culture, as well as a day of reflection.
