Juneteenth is a holiday celebrated on June 19th commemorating the end of slavery in the United States (Britannica.) This year at RPM, we will be participating in the local NAACP Juneteenth celebration throughout the day on June 19th, 2024. During our open hours, visitors can interact with different community organizations in the Atrium.

Museum admission will be free on June 19th with a donation of one of the following items to be donated to and support families who are relocating to our community from Haiti: beans, rice, garlic, bouillon cubes, rosemary, basil, tomato paste, black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, crushed tomatoes, apple cider vinegar, cooking oil, or coffee.

In the evening, Wynton Butler, historian for the Reading NAACP, will be presenting a special Juneteenth lecture. The lecture will begin at 6:30pm, but attendees are welcome to be there from 6-8pm. The lecture will be accomapnied by light refreshments. There is no cost to attend the lecture, but we encourage you to pre-register to save your seat! Pre-register below.
