The Juneteenth Headquarters & Gallery

The notion of Absolute Equity comes to life at the Juneteenth Headquarters and Art Gallery. Your journey begins with experiencing our art installation and storytelling space, a 5,000-square-foot representation of history that moves from enslavement to the pursuit of freedom. The Juneteenth Headquarters is a creative and inclusive space where our rich heritage thrives, and every voice is celebrated and honored. The space offers a unique opportunity to celebrate African American culture, history, and achievements through community gatherings and events that foster a profound sense of unity and pride.

Heading to Galveston? We'd love for you to visit us!
