“Juneteenth” the Play, Irving Black Arts Council

Saturday, June 9, 2018

Hot off the heels of the major success of his stage play, “Watch Night: A Freedom’s Eve Story,” T.K. Henderson and Greg Ellis - the former Dallas Cowboys star turned playwright and director - have written the follow up play, “Juneteenth.” Through dialogue and music, with modern day scenes and flashbacks to 1865, “Juneteenth” recreates the pivotal story of slavery in the state of Texas, and how the slaves were finally granted freedom.
