ABHM Celebrates Juneteenth

This Juneteenth, ABHM invites you to join us throughout the week to celebrate freedom, family, art, culture, and community, in honor of the 52nd Juneteenth Day recognition in the city of Milwaukee presented by Northcott Neighborhood House and ABHM’s 35th anniversary. All of the week’s events and admission to the museum will be free and open to the public thanks to a generous donation from Herb Kohl Philanthropies.*

Featured events for families and children will include story time and arts and crafts with community partners. Our partners will be reading Juneteenth: A Children’s Story by Dr. Opal Lee, the Grandmother of Juneteenth, and other Juneteenth related titles. We will also have arts and crafts activities led by ABHM staff and volunteers. The fun and learning continues with history-focused programs such as tours with our Griots (docents) and opportunities for intergenerational connection.

Comments Are Welcome

Note: We moderate submissions in order to create a space for meaningful dialogue, a space where museum visitors – adults and youth –– can exchange informed, thoughtful, and relevant comments that add value to our exhibits.

Racial slurs, personal attacks, obscenity, profanity, and SHOUTING do not meet the above standard. Such comments are posted in the exhibit Hateful Speech. Commercial promotions, impersonations, and incoherent comments likewise fail to meet our goals, so will not be posted. Submissions longer than 120 words will be shortened.
