On June 19, 1865, more than two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, Union Gen. Gordon Granger announced in Galveston that all enslaved people in Texas were now free. The day would become commemorated as Juneteenth, but for the now-free African Americans, the future was uncertain.

STAGE: Mikhail Baryshnikov on “The Orchard”
At the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City, dancer and actor Mikhail Baryshnikov stars in an adaptation of Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard,” a story whose themes of loss and freedom echo with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. He talks with correspondent Anthony Mason about the production, and how the dancer, who has remained largely non-political since his 1974 defection from the Soviet Union, says he can no longer stay silent on what he calls Putin’s war.

PREVIEW: Mikhail Baryshnikov on criticizing Vladimir Putin: “I will be 75 years old. What have I to lose?”
