Movies in Many celebrates Juneteenth with “Harriet” screening

Movies in Many will observe Juneteenth 2021 with a special showing of the movie Harriet. The free movie will begin at the Many Community Center at 7 p.m. on June 19.

In honor of Juneteenth, there will also be a guest speaker and also some awesome door prizes. Several door prizes relate directly to Harriet Tubman’s history.

Juneteenth commemorates the date— June 19, 1865, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation and two months after the end of the Civil War—when hundreds of thousands of enslaved men and women in Texas finally learned they had been freed. Juneteenth is an important milestone in American culture because it celebrates the end of slavery in the United States.
