“Then, thenceforward, and Forever Free”; Slavery and Emancipation in Washington County

June 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Slavery was the abhorrent reality in the Town of Washington and Republic/State of Texas until June 19th, 1865. Join us in Washington as we discuss the real histories of enslaved persons in Texas and the commemoration of emancipation marked by the Juneteenth holiday. Be sure to join us the following weekend, June 25th, as we celebrate the ending of the brutal institution of slavery in Texas at our annual Juneteenth Celebration. Contact Kevin Malcolm at kevin.malcolm@thc.texas.gov or 936-878-2214 ext. 224 for more information
