June 19, is a day to recognize the freedom of the last enslaved people in America. It was on this day in 1865 that the news of the Emancipation Proclamation, signed in 1863 by Abraham Lincoln, reached the western-most part of the United States making all people in America free.
In celebration of Juneteenth, several local organizations will be hosting artwork from Mazza Museum’s “Miles of Bravery: The Underground Railroad through Picture Books” exhibit. Each location will have art and books from the collection as well as family-friendly activities.
This event is a self-guided tour through 7 locations throughout Findlay. It is open to the public, family-friendly, and free.
The day will begin with a lunch and learn at the University of Findlay. Pre-registration to secure a meal is now closed, however walk-in’s are welcome!
