Deal Box, Inc., a financial technology-focused capital advisory firm, announced today that it has been engaged by June 19 Museum, Inc. for advisory services relating to its initial seed round and planned Security Token Offering. The $3,000,000 seed round offering is available under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Securities Act”), for accredited investors only. Following the seed round close, a Series A investment of up to $10,000,000 is planned in Juneteenth Museum security tokens and will be made solely to accredited investors, also under Rule 506(c). This new Juneteenth tokenize security will represent an investment in a social movement aimed at eliminating the scourge of slavery, in all its forms, throughout the world.
The June 19 Museum was founded to develop world class tourist destinations dedicated to the Juneteenth Holiday . The purpose of the seed round of funding is to acquire the 1861 Customs House in Galveston, Texas. The company is transforming the Customs House historic site into “The Customs House – Juneteenth Museum.” This new center will feature a boutique hotel, restaurant, and educational activities that support the national celebration of Juneteenth. It will also be an “experiential museum” that will use virtual and augmented reality to celebrate global diversity and inclusion through the stories and historical significance of Juneteenth.
June 19 Museum Inc. recently announced the appointment of motivational speaker, Ms. Jacqueline Griffin, and Galveston City fixture, Mr. Douglas Matthews, to its Board of Advisors. Ms. Griffin will be a spotlight speaker at special Juneteenth banquets and become a Juneteenth Ambassador. In this role, Ms. Griffin will support fundraising activities and other national observance events. Mr. Matthews’ involvement with the Galveston Juneteenth celebration started on June 19, 1980, when he served as Galveston Assistant City Manager, celebrating with Texas State Representative Al Edwards at Galveston’s Ashton Villa.
Historians recognize the Galveston site as the birthplace of Juneteenth. On June 19, 1865, U.S. Major General Gordon Granger announced the enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation that was released two years prior. The emancipation of slavery in Galveston ended that practice, giving birth to the Juneteenth holiday.
