On the museum side, attendees can also take in the Juneteenth: A Celebration of Freedom exhibit, the Juneteenth Sculpture Garden and an ongoing screening of PBS-KLRU’s “Juneteenth Jamboree.” Para Agboga, museum site coordinator, gives an opening address on the historical significance of the day at noon.
