Juneteenth is a federal holiday commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. Today it is a celebration of Black culture, contribution, and progression. On behalf of the Orpheum Theatre Group, in partnership with Telisa Franklin and Memphis Juneteenth, we celebrate and honor all the amazing accomplishments of African Americans locally, nationally, and in our organization. This special movie screening is a small token of our appreciation.
We hope you enjoy Miss Juneteenth!
