Uhuru Season: 17 Days of Freedom Art Exhibit

Visit Lefferts Historic House to view a series of posters created by local artist Grey Jones. This site-specific exhibition commemorates the historical tradition of celebrating Juneteenth, the last day that Americans were freed from enslavement, and July 5, the day that many Black Americans historically celebrated American Independence as a sociopolitical protest to the continued enslavement of people prior to emancipation.

On each of the 17 days between June 19 and July 5 a new poster exhibit highlighting a particular freedom will be hung on the toll house at Lefferts Historic House across from Juneteenth Way to encourage reflection and celebration of freedom.
