Juneteenth Celebration

On June 19, 1865, Texas finally got the message that slavery had been abolished (two years after the rest of the country). Today, African Americans celebrate Juneteenth as an anniversary of emancipation, and kids can join the fun at the Children’s Museum of Houston’s Juneteenth Celebration. Activities include performances, ice-cream making and arts projects. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday. Through June 19. 1500 Binz. For information, call 713-522-1138 or visit www.cmhouston.org. $4 to $5; free Thursdays after 5 p.m.
June 16-18, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Thu., June 19, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., 2008
KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
