On June 19, 1865, Union troops reached Galveston, Texas where African Americans were still enslaved and harvesting cotton fields.  They were immediately freed and, since then, the date has been commemorated in the African American community as a celebration of freedom.  The Rosa Parks Museum's third annual Juneteenth Celebration will take place on Saturday, June 22, 2019.  This block party-style event will take place on Montgomery Street in front of the Museum from 11:00AM to 6:00PM.  Enjoy live music, food and merchandise vendors, and complimentary admission to the Museum.  This event is free and open to the public.
