Juneteenth Exhibition

It has been 150 years since African Americans were given freedom in Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865. This intimate journey to the present has been documented in pictures at the “Juneteenth Exhibit” by the Center of Greater Southwestern Studies. This celebration of black heritage features a variety of photographs, highlighting black legacy. The exhibit opened on March 28, 2015 and will run through August 9, 2015. Students will be able to step into the past and really get a sense of the history of African Americans and the value of freedom. The exhibit is located on the sixth floor of the Central Library in the parlor.
