While Juneteenth is officially celebrated on June 19, the Tennessee State Museum will celebrate the day with a day-long event on Saturday, June 10. This year’s Juneteenth Celebration, “Looking to the Past to Empower the Future,” will feature an edition of our TN Writers | TN Stories series with New York Times bestselling author Sheree Renée Thomas. We'll also have a helpful "In Conversation" event, with a group of panelists who will discuss beginner steps and best practices for preserving your own family history through material culture. Throughout the day, families can enjoy Storytime and craft activities at the Museum. There will also be a dance, poetry and music hour followed by a special panel discussion on preserving Black family history.
