The Living Room at HPL presents: Celebrating Juneteenth at the Mancuso Neighborhood Library!

Celebrate Juneteenth at the Mancuso Neighborhood Library!

Juneteenth marks our country’s second independence day. Let's celebrate with poetry, author talks, storytimes, crafts, and more! 
Learn more about the curated collections that represent the African American experience in Houston and Texas, housed at the African American Library at the Gregory School, the first library of its kind in Houston and one of the few African American libraries in the country. 

Featuring:

  • Toni Simmons, author and storyteller
  • Maria Mayer, an African American quilter and a member of The Blue Triangle Quilt Guild of Houston, displaying "The Underground Railroad and Quilt Codes," an exciting exhibit of mini quilts using the quilt codes thought to be from quilts made by African slaves during slavery in America
  • Artist Norola Morgan - "I create stories and magic with the treasures I find, bringing characters to life from the visions in my mind"

This will be an event fun for the whole family! 

This event is FREE and open to the public.
