By March 26, 2024Press Release

Villa Maria is partnering with the KORP Foundation and WUFO to host a movie screening of “Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom” in the College Auditorium on April 4, 2024.

“Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom” is an unscripted documentary that invites viewers into the story of Juneteenth, the holiday recognizing the end of legalized slavery in Texas, through the eyes of a Black man learning about the holiday from the direct descendants of those liberated. The story serves as a parable that offers hope, and the insight that faith can be the greatest weapon against injustice.

The movie screening will be complemented by a panel discussion, live entertainment, Black-owned vendors, refreshments, and more.
