The Museum SFV and community celebrate Juneteenth

President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, as the nation approached its third year of bloody civil war. The proclamation declared "that all persons held as slaves" within the rebellious states "are, and henceforward shall be free."

Some African Americans celebrated as their prayers had been answered that the Emancipation Proclamation had taken effect. Enslaved slaves in the Confederate States were declared legally free.  Soldiers from the Union side, many of whom were black, marched onto plantations and across cities in the south reading small copies of the Emancipation Proclamation.

However, unfortunately, not everyone in Confederate territory would immediately be free. The Emanicpation Proclamation was made effective in 1863, but it could not be implemented in places still under Confederate control.  In the Confederate state of Texas, freedom would not officially arrive until June 19, 1865, when some 2,000 Union troops arrived in Galveston Bay, Texas. The army announced that the more than 250,000 enslaved black people in the state, were free by executive decree. This day came to be known as "Juneteenth," by the newly freed people in Texas. 

Please listen to The Museum SFV's board member and President of the Pacoima Historical Society speak about her family and this holiday.

Funded by a grant from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, The Museum chose to focus its reintroduction event on celebrating Asian-American Pacific-Islander Heritage month by engaging the San Fernando Valley Asian/Pacific Islander businesses and neighbors who have become part of the fabric of the Valley.

Jackie Langa, Vice President of The Museum, explains: “It is The Museum’s role to give a central voice to the distinctive histories of all populations in the SFV whose cultures, races, religions and ideas contributed to the Valley’s character, growth and development.”

This festive and family friendly event will celebrate many diverse Asian cultures through their art, music, dance, food and more at The Museum’s new location on the grounds of the beautiful Rancho Cordillera del Norte in Northridge. Festival highlights will include vendors’ booths, food trucks, demonstrations, onstage entertainment, children’s art workshops and the opportunity to visit the Museum and its exhibits. Visitors will be offered an immersive experience.

Later in the evening the Museum will also present an indoor theater screening and community discussion of Aimee Long’s film “A Shot Through The Wall.” The community’s discussion will be directed by a panel to discuss the film’s relevance to the diversely-ethnic SFV Pan-Asian/Pacific communities. Reservations for the film will be required.

Ms. Langa further explains: “We are trying to direct the conversation to celebrate SFV Asian-American/Pacific Islander residents in their specific neighborhoods for their day-to-day strengths and importance to the growth of the Valley while also examining their challenges as an ethnic community.”
