Meet the Artists

With support from the Gavleston, TX based Juneteenth Legacy Project, Reginald C. Adams led a team of artists known as the Creatives to bring to life, “Absolute Equality,” a 5000 square foot mural that was completed and dedicated on June 19, 2021 in Galveston, TX, the birthplace of Juneteenth.  Now, they are taking the story of Juneteenth, freedom, and the pursuit of Absolute Equality across America.

BRINGING HISTORY TO LIFE

Juneteenth

In 2020, nationwide protests against racism and police brutality gave new urgency to Juneteenth, a holiday long-cherished by Black Americans—an observance of emancipation and resilience in a centuries-old journey. 

Juneteenth is now observed annually on June 19, celebrating the emancipation of those enslaved in the United States, with varying degrees of official recognition. The United States, as of June 15, 2021, recognizes Juneteenth as a national holiday.

Absolute Equality aims to recontextualize Juneteenth as a pivotal moment in the arc of U.S. history while properly telling the story of its genesis, and historical and contemporary relevance through the power of public art.

Take a
Journey

through the eyes of a little boy who experiences the magic of the Juneteenth parade for the first time with his family as they come to understand the purpose of the festivities that happens every year-and why they celebrate their American history!

The poetic text includes selected lyrics from "Lift Every Voice and Sing," the unofficial Black National Anthem, and the vibrant art illuminates the beauty of this moment of Black joy, celebrated across the nation.  This dynamic adventure through the city streets of Galveston, Texas, the birthplace of Juneteenth, invites young readers to make a joyful noise about Absolute Equality and freedom for all.

Absolute Equality has harnessed the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to unveil the untold stories of the Juneteenth legacy. By leveraging AI-driven imagery and natural language processing, Absolute Equality has meticulously gathered historical records, oral histories, and cultural artifacts to reconstruct a comprehensive narrative of Juneteenth's significance.

Absolute Equality's innovative use of AI has brought to light forgotten stories, amplifying the voices of those who have been historically marginalized, and ensuring that the legacy of Juneteenth is honored and shared with future generations.
