About this Event
Juneteenth Jubilee commences with the 2nd Annual Juneteenth Jubilee Golf Classic which celebrates the history, heritage, and artistry of African Americans while bringing awareness to community health disparities and other social issues.
During the golf classic, civic, business, faith leaders, and the community at large join in to play a round of golf with organizations who help reduce health disparities or participate in other community social causes.
Proceeds from the 2nd Annual Juneteenth Jubilee Golf Classic help us to not only operationalize the Juneteenth events, but also undergird and subsidize other ATC Festival cultural events which highlight local artists throughout the year, most of whom are African American and from our community.

Digital Art Show
After a fun filled, celebratory day, golfers and community meet up in the evening for an Afrofuturism themed art show. Most of the artwork will display on a digital platform. All of the featured artists have ties with the local community.
Panel Discussion and After Dark Celebration
Local civic and community leaders, artists, and visionaries discuss historical and current issues facing the local Black community. Simultaneously, the panel will explore how to reimagine the concept of Blackness, Black identity, and culture in a future space.
After the panel discussion, during the After Dark Celebration, emerging music producers exhibit their latest creations on the main stage, while DJs spin multi-genre music from multiple decades on different stages. The evening includes food trucks, drinks, and plenty of socializing, reflection, and future thought.

Juneteenth is a holiday celebrated on 19 June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.
