Celebrate Juneteenth

Live From the Museum: Juneteenth and the Fight for Abolition

Tuesday, June 18 | Noon ET

Run time: 40 minutes

Students are invited to prepare for Juneteenth in Civil War and Reconstruction: The Battle for Freedom and Equality, as one of our museum educators leads viewers through the exhibit. Learn how constitutional clashes over slavery set the stage for the Civil War, and how the nation transformed the Constitution after the war during the Reconstruction period. Along the way, you’ll hear the stories of people central to the conflict over slavery and give you an up-close look at special artifacts on display.
