Happy Juneteenth! To commemorate the holiday, we’ll learn about past and present freedom jubilees through a book reading. Possible books to be read include: “Juneteenth for Mazie,” “Free at Last: A Juneteenth Poem,” and “The Juneteenth Story: Celebrating the End of Slavery in the United States.”
Throughout the month of June, MHS will be welcoming audiences of all ages to gather to critically examine systemic racism and celebrate Juneteenth. This program is part of the Missouri History Museum’s Summer Family Fun Series and Storytelling in the Museum event series.
