“The Walk to Freedom”
June 19, 2014 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Houston Museum of African American Culture, 4807 Caroline St., Houston, TX 77004
Join the Houston Museum of African American Culture (HMAAC) and Holocaust Museum Houston as we come together to commemorate Juneteenth. Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration marking the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that Union soldiers led by Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. The evening will begin at HMAAC with light refreshments and an historical overview of the history of Juneteenth. At 6:35 p.m., participants will take a reflective walk four blocks down Caroline Street to Holocaust Museum Houston to remember those who walked off plantations 148 years ago to begin their lives as freed individuals. The WALIPP-TSU Preparatory Academy will accompany walkers by playing and singing inspiring hymns of freedom. The evening will conclude at HMH with the screening of the documentary film “The New Juneteenth,” followed by a question and answer session by filmmaker Isaac Fanuiel. Admission is free, but seating is limited and advance registration is requested. Visit https://www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx to RSVP online.
