IN PERSON: Journey to Freedom with Sankofa Stories

Thursday June 22 | 7:00pm | Auditorium

"Nobody's free until everybody's free." - Fannie Lou Hamer

For over 250 years, Black people were enslaved in the United States, until they were declared legally free by the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. The news of their freedom did not reach the enslaved in Texas until June 19, 1865. This day, known as "Juneteenth," celebrates the end of slavery throughout the United States. Join Sankofa Stories on this storytelling journey from the agony of slavery to the joy of emancipation in celebration of Juneteenth.
