In honor of the 155th anniversary of Juneteenth, six Black museums are launching a site aimed at observing this holiday, which commemorates the day on which Union army general Gordon Granger read aloud federal orders announcing the freedom of all enslaved people in Texas. Resources will include fact cards as well as a video, Juneteenth: Black Freedom, live-streaming on Friday, June 19, at 12 p.m. EDT and featuring Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden, the first woman and African American to lead the national library, among others.
