Juneteenth Brings the Community Together

In wake of the darkness that the murders in South Carolina has left on the Black community across the country, many chose to come together in the spirit of freedom for a celebration of Juneteenth. The festivities began with a Juneteenth open house at the MFA continued with celebrations and demonstrations at the Afro-American Art Museum and concluded with the annual cookout at Franklin Park.
