In honor of Juneteenth, the Alamo will host a special screening of the documentary "Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom" on Juneteenth 2024. This free event will be held in the historic Alamo Long Barrack, beginning at 9 AM.

"Juneteenth: Faith and Freedom" is an unscripted documentary that invites viewers into the story of Juneteenth - the holiday recognizing the end of legalized slavery in Texas - through the eyes of a Black man learning about the holiday from the direct descendants of those liberated. The journey starts in Galveston, where the liberation was first announced, to Houston, the site of Freedmen's Town, and heads to Dallas from there, speaking to historians, artists, community organizers, and leaders of the Black Church. The story serves as a parable that offers hope and the insight that faith can be the greatest weapon against injustice.

The 57-minute documentary will be followed by a live and virtual Q&A session with the film's director, Mr. Rasool Berry. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to engage with Mr. Berry and gain deeper insights into the documentary's creation and its message.

This documentary is also dedicated to Dr. Carey Latimore, a significant contributor to the Alamo Plan, who tragically passed away in the summer of 2022. 

The event will begin at 9 AM in the Alamo Long Barrack with the documentary screening. The Q&A session with Mr. Rasool Berry will follow immediately after the film. This event is free and open to the public, and no registration is required.
