FIRST SATUDAY PRESENTATION – Juneteenth in Missouri: A History by Gary Kremer

In observation of Juneteenth, Dr. Gary Kremer, Executive Director of the State Historical Society of Missouri, will return to deliver his fascinating presentation about the history of Juneteenth/August 4th in Missouri—and why the celebration of this national holiday is important for all Missourians. Gary was Scholar-in-Residence for the Friends of Arrow Rock in the late 1990s, and has thoroughly re- searched Arrow Rock’s African American history, which informed the exhibits at the Black Lodge Museum. Dr. Kremer’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A. Brown’s Chapel Free Will Baptist Church, 710 High Street, Arrow Rock, MO.
