LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center plans an outdoor festival for the annual Juneteenth commemoration, which marks the end of slavery.

A free street festival is planned for Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Little Rock, featuring children’s activities, food vendors and live entertainment. The cultural center will also hold a free preview screening Saturday afternoon of “American Experience: Freedom Summer,” which documents 10 weeks during the summer of 1964.

The museum will also have a special exhibit featuring Arkansas’ black legislators from 1868 to 1893.

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of the slavery.
