Juneteenth 2015

2015 is the sesquicentennial of several prominent moments in American history, including the assassination of Pres. Lincoln, the end of the War Between the States, and Juneteenth! From the Bullock Texas History Museum in Austin, host Harrison Eppright presents a tour of 2014 Juneteenth celebrations from across the country. And from around the country are reports on “Juneteenth National Freedom Day” in Iowa, and the congenial state of racial affairs in Appleton, Wisconsin, a former sundown town.
