Juneteenth, a blend of the words June and nineteenth, honors the end of slavery in the United States. Celebrated on June 19, it marks the day in 1865 that Major General Gordon Granger of the Union Army landed in Galveston, Texas, and informed slaves there that the Civil War had ended and slavery was abolished.
East End Arts will be closed on Friday, June 19th in observance of Juneteenth. We will take this time to reflect on this monumental date as a celebration of freedom and a chance to recharge so that we can continue to drive positive change in our lives and the lives of others.
