Juneteenth Past & Present

While the annual observance of Juneteenth celebrates the ending of slavery in Texas and the rest of the nation, what is the holiday’s legacy for modern African American communities? We’ll discuss the links between the demise of antebellum slavery and today’s popular culture with local historian Donald Payton and Professor Venus Opal Reese of the University of Texas at Dallas. The Art&Seek guest this week is Mary Kate O’Hare, curator of the upcoming exhibition “Constructive Spirit: Abstract Art in South and North America 1920s-50s” at the Amon Carter Museum.
