Juneteenth is approaching, and there are a few big ways to celebrate coming up in Northwest Arkansas.
- Connections: Juneteenth is now a federal holiday commemorating the day all Americans became free. As a part of the community’s celebrations this weekend and to bring awareness, education, and exposure, the Second Annual Arkansas Black Film Showcase will be at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art today at 6p.
