Juneteenth is the celebration of the end of slavery in the United States. Step back in time. Hear the story of Sally, a five-year-old little slave girl, as told by her granddaughter through a video presentation, and learn about a local landmark now known as Sallies Crying Tree. Enjoy the music and songs performed by local musicians, listen to poetry and view the work of local artists in a place of worship, built by former slaves and their descendants after the Civil War, now known as the Mount Pleasant Preservation Society, Inc. Museum. BACK TO ALL EVENTS
