Juneteenth and Beyond is a Black owned and operated guided sightseeing and tourism business.  We are amazing, passionate, professional, and knowledgeable about Galveston's African American culturally rich sites! It was founded by Dr. Araminta Coleman Sorrell, a native of Washington, D.C. who loves Galveston and its glorious history, especially its Black history.  Juneteenth and Beyond is Galveston's very first African American guided history tour franchise.
