MAY LECTURE SERIES

Join the Frontier Culture Museum for our third lecture in out 2022 Lecture Series. The talk will take place on May 31, 2022 from 7 PM – 8 PM in the Dairy Barn Lecture Hall. May’s Lecture is Chloe Porche from the University of Virginia’s PhD program. This talk is free and open to the public.

This month's talk is titled, “Juneteenth: The Culture and Politics behind Freedom Days in the United States, 1750-1900”

Not until 2021 did the United States federally recognize Juneteenth as a national holiday to celebrate the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. But what is Juneteenth? When did it start? Who celebrates it? Who should celebrate it? Juneteenth has a surprisingly complex and rich history, with cultural origins tracing back to the burgeoning public display of Black political aspirations in the Revolutionary Era, to the proliferation of “freedom days” marking the process of emancipation in the late-nineteenth century. Juneteenth’s political genealogy serves as a key to better understanding American political culture and ideology. By contextualizing Juneteenth, this talk will delineate the evolution and meanings of this distinctly American celebration.
