ABOUT THE FILM
With the Galveston landing of U.S. Army Gen. Gordon Granger in 1865, slavery in Texas ended. African bondsmen became freedmen, and women and children likewise became African Americans. Many left the plantations to join freedom colonies; others sought out opportunities in cities and towns. Today, the consequences of gentrification and rising property values challenge new generations.

Following the screening, panelists take questions and discuss issues raised by the film, the history of Juneteenth celebrations, and their personal experiences honoring and celebrating the day.
