Built like a bird, 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 slavery was abolished in Texas. 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.

11 am - 5 pm JuneteenthICT Blood Drive sponsored by American Red Cross

 Maintaining a diverse blood supply is a priority of the American Red Cross because it’s important to patients. For example, people who have sickle cell disease do better when treated with blood from a donor with a similar ethnic background. Some African Americans have rare blood types that are unique for the African American community, and that blood type may be the hope for survival of a patient. You can see more about this from Red Cross here.

 To make your life-saving appointment please visit RedCrossBlood.org (search sponsor keyword Juneteenth ICT) or call 1-800-REDCROSS or click here.​​​​ Location The center 1914 E 11th 

To thank you for coming to give June 14-30, we’ll send you a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card by email. Restrictions apply,    see amazon.com/gc-legal. Terms at rcblood.org/together
