4. Juneteenth Celebration June 18th 2pm-4pm (Lewis H. Latimer Museum, Queens)
The Lewis H. Latimer House Museum in Queens, named after the Black inventor and creative, will honor Juneteenth through a series of activities and workshops that draw inspiration from Latimer’s life as a poet and writer. The free event will include a workshop for poetry and portraiture led by Brooklyn-based creative consultant Quentin Felton.
Interdisciplinary artist Dario Mohr will also host a “Sow the Seeds” workshop. Participants will write to ancestors on seed-based paper that will be planted at the historic Old Stone House in a 2023 ceremony welcoming life from Africa, in the form of African Daisy seeds, to American military and athletic landmarks.
