Join us for a FREE family day celebration of Juneteenth! The day will be filled with singing, dancing, arts & crafts, a drum circle and story time.

Juneteenth! is one of the most important and storied historical occasions in the African American community across the nation. It marks the moment in 1865 that enslaved people received word of the abolishment of slavery at the close of the Civil War. Round up your family and meet us here to enjoy the rhythm & sounds, movements, visuals and stories of African American history. You will also have the opportunity to support and shop with local artisans on-site.

As an added bonus – admission is FREE for all exhibits so make sure to visit. In partnership with House of Africa, Levine Museum will host this educational family day, all with the goal of underscoring the history since the abolishment of slavery and the ongoing advancement of civil rights for African Americans
