The Academy Art Museum and Frederick Douglass Honor Society in Talbot County celebrated Juneteenth with valor and flair a few days ago.
Speakers, artists, vendors, and youth joined together to spread knowledge of what Juneteenth means to not only our community, but the nation as well. Collaborating with the Hill Project, the community learned there is a rich history all around Talbot County that makes it so special.
Visit the Academy Art Museum to view and learn more about the 1864 Sesquicentennial Maryland Emancipation Quilt, designed by Dr. Joan M.E. Gaither, an active member in local professional arts organizations documenting the lives and culture of African Americans in Maryland.
