Fort Worth To Be Home Of National Juneteenth Museum

(Fort Worth, TX) — The National Juneteenth Museum is coming to North Texas. Sable Brands says the museum will be put in a Fort Worth neighborhood as part of a mixed-use development. It’s expected to have the pen used by President Biden to sign a bill making June 19th a national holiday. The state-of-the-art museum will replace the Fort Worth Juneteenth Museum run by Opal Lee who was heavily involved in making Juneteenth a federal holiday. It could open in 2023. Juneteenth marks the day when Union soldiers told Blacks in Southeast Texas the Civil War was over and they were no longer slaves.
