The Alamo will host a free screening of Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom throughout the day. The first showing will begin at 9 a.m. in the Long Barrack on Wednesday, June 19th. This showing 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.

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.

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.
