SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Telfair Museums' Jepson Center for the Arts hosted the 11th annual Juneteenth Celebration on Saturday.
Juneteenth is celebrated each year on June 19. The event is a tribute to the end of slavery in the United States.
There was storytelling, art on display and even hands-on activities at the center on Saturday.
Participants say it's a great way to learn about the culture and history that has been passed down through so many generations.
"It's hands on, they are able to touch. Whenever a child can touch something and they don't feel like they're going to break it, they seem to enjoy it a learn a little bit, plus it gives a little history with it also," said Gregory Grant, who is a basket maker.
There were also live performances by the Abeni Cultural Performance Group and the Men of St. John "The Mighty Fortress" choir during this year's Free Family Day.
