Juneteenth Pictorial: The Middle Passage
Begun in Galveston, Texas, in 1865, Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration of the ending of slavery. This site "is dedicated to this celebration and to those who tirelessly contribute to its continued existence and growth." Here you will find selections from artist Tom Feelings’s book The Middle Passage, a work that chronicles the journey of enslaved Africans from their homeland to the Americas. Write a poem that captures your response to one of these moving works of art.
