Dear LAHM Community,

The Louis Armstrong House Museum will be closing its offices on Friday, June 19th in honor of the 155th anniversary of Juneteenth, the oldest known observance commemorating the end of slavery on American soil. We encourage all to safely celebrate this utmost historical occasion while remaining cognizant and ever aware of the systemic injustices that still plague the Black community in the United States today. We also invite you to participate in the special events that our cultural partners are hosting and wish you a joyful and peaceful holiday.
