Juneteenth Lecture by Joy Sewing

For this year’s Juneteenth lecture, we’re excited to bring Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist Joy Sewing to The Bryan Museum. In December, she became the Houston Chronicle’s first Black news columnist in the company’s 122-year history.

Sewing reports and opines on critical issues including social justice, politics, education, health care and inequity. She will discuss the Chronicle’s Juneteenth project, in which she covered the historical significance of the national holiday and interviewed descendants of formerly enslaved men and women who made their indelible mark along the Emancipation Trail from Galveston to Houston.

This event is free with a reservation. RSVP today through the 'Tickets' link.
