Organized by Olivia Menghini

As we commemorate Juneteenth, join us for a documentary screening of Juneteenth: Faith and Freedom, co-presented with the Eastville Community Historical Society and Southampton African American Museum.

A Critics’ Selection at the Dallas International Film Festival, Juneteenth: Faith and Freedom tells the story of Juneteenth, and the historical and cultural role faith played in the African American experience, shedding light on a widely unknown spiritual significance. History professor Dr. Carey Latimore travels to Galveston, Texas, with special guests to recount the impact and meaning of emancipation, lived experiences, and how the holiday revealed a deep connection between faith and freedom for African Americans.

Friday Nights are made possible by The Corcoran Group.
