At the Cultural Museum of African Art (CMAA), we are thrilled to celebrate Juneteenth, a day that marks a pivotal moment in African American history and the broader story of freedom and resilience.

What is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth, celebrated on June 19th, commemorates the day in 1865 when the last enslaved African Americans in Galveston, Texas, were informed of their freedom, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. This day is a powerful reminder of the struggles and triumphs in the fight for freedom and equality.

Our Vision

Here at CMAA, our vision is to relocate African art and culture into the hearts and minds of people worldwide. We believe that by showcasing the rich tapestry of African heritage spanning 4,000 years, we can foster a greater understanding of our shared human history and ignite a profound sense of unity among all cultures.
