JUNETEENTH USA PROJECTS
COMMUNITY IMPACT PROJECTS
Juneteenth USA is happy to announce the opportunity for community projects highlighting the arts and education to submit their executive summaries to be considered for funding by J-USA.

Please email email@example.com to be considered.
ABSOLUTE EQUALITY MURAL PROJECT
Juneteenth USA is proud to announce its partnership with muralist Reggie Adams and Absolute Equality Inc. Absolute Equality Inc. marked the day Juneteenth became a federal holiday with the unveiling of a 5,000-square-foot public art mural that overlooks the site where Granger issued General Order No. 3. The intent behind this installation—called Absolute Equality—is to reconsider the role of monuments and memorials in telling pivotal moments in American history.
OST THEATER PROJECT
Juneteenth USA is the proud owner of the OST Theater in Houston that was purchased in the 1990's by our previous board but never received the support required to complete an adequate capital campaign to bring it back to operations. Juneteenth USA owns this key real estate debt free and will begin initial studies of costs, and potential uses of the building for Juneteenth related event but also culturally relevant events. Members of the board are in communication with the current Mayor of Houston and County Officials that are supportive of the re-imagining of this theater as a place for art in Houston.
Juneteenth USA Scholarship Fund
Juneteenth USA's primary goal throughout the year is to uplift the population most affected by American slavery. With your support, we will throughout the year provide scholarships to HBCU students and K-12 STEAM-focused educational programs.
