The Juneteenth Story: From Galveston, TX to Minnesota
The Juneteenth Story From Galveston, Texas to Minnesota, is a six-episode docufilm, filmed on the Island of Galveston and in Saint Paul, Minnesota, telling the story of Juneteenth, where it originated, from historians and descendants of enslaved persons transported to the Island during the transatlantic slave trade between 1816 and 1836. The story connects the significance of making Juneteenth a state holiday in Minnesota.

The film will air on SPNN and SpeakMPLS locally at 9:00 am on June 19th and in Houston and Galveston, Texas (see local listings.)
