Each year, Juneteenth marks a celebration of freedom and independence for Black Americans, commemorating the day in 1865 when enslaved people in the Confederate state of Texas were freed. Today, on the 155th anniversary of Juneteenth, we celebrate this history and the ongoing work to ensure equality and equity for Black Americans while reflecting on works in the Museum’s collection by Black artists.
