The Juneteenth Experience Juneteenth, a blend of the words "June" and "nineteenth," celebrates the end of enslavement in America, when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure all enslaved people be freed. Also known as America's second Independence Day, Emancipation Day, Juneteenth Independence Day, and Black Independence Day, Juneteenth honors enslaved people, African American heritage, and the many contributions that Black people have made to the United States. It is a day of freedom, of liberation, and of jubilation.
On June 19th, 2021, Hued Songs and Rhythm Foundation will present will a celebration of black joy, black arts, and black community. It will begin with a series of community workshops and conversations and conclude with a multidisciplinary performance of song, dance, spoken word, and film, along with a pre-concert showing of original short films on Black identity.
Join us at 6PM for a showing of three original, short films produced by members of the Juneteenth creative team, followed by a 7PM performance.
