Slave Haven Underground Railroad Museum will celebrate Juneteenth in conjunction with the 400th Year of Perseverance commemorating the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade on June 22.

The year 1619 marks the beginning of slavery of African Americans. Juneteenth (June 19, 1865) is the date that the last African Americans were granted their freedom.

Located at 826 No. Second St., the Slave Haven Underground Railroad Museum is the location of a safe house where enslaved Africans sought refuge in their escape to freedom.

Special celebration features include: Libations (a tribute to the ancestors); Dramatizations: Spirit of Harriet Tubman; Exhibit: “Before and After the Middle Passage” by Jeff & Shaakira Edison; and Display of Names of Slave Ships: 1819-60; Readings of Slave Narratives.
