Turquoise Jones is a single mom who holds down a household, a rebellious teenager, and pretty much everything that goes down at Wayman’s BBQ & Lounge. Turquoise is also a bona fide beauty queen–she was once crowned Miss Juneteenth, a title commemorating the day slaves in Texas were freed–two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Life didn’t turn out as beautifully as the title promised, but Turquoise, determined to right her wrongs, is cultivating her daughter, Kai, to become Miss Juneteenth, even if Kai wants something else. NR, 93 min.

"MISS JUNETEENTH isn't trying to make grand proclamations about what it means to be Black in America today. The film is too smart for such grandstanding. Instead, it revels in watching Black folks just be." New York Magazine

"A warm, rich story of broken dreams, family struggle and emotional triumph that puts black Texas women in the center of the frame."Houston Chronicle

"A lovely, low-key first feature from writer-director Channing Godfrey Peoples, MISS JUNETEENTH has a sense of place and an air of resigned resilience that feels thoroughly lived-in."Boston Globe
