Sweet Honey In The Rock: Juneteenth – A Day of Remembrance
June 19, 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM EDT$19
SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK® invites you to a virtual concert and post-performance panel on Juneteenth, Friday, June 19, 8pm, in honor of this day in 1865 that news of emancipation reached the last group of enslaved Black people in Galveston, TX – two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued, making slavery illegal.
Join us for an interactive experience of spirit and song, where, in spite of COVID-19 and continued systemic racial oppression, we will stand together, even while apart, as a global community! Through song, poem, and discussion, we will reflect on our nation’s turbulent racial past and present, while uplifting the dignity and wellbeing of all people.
Featuring special guests including Danny Glover, Aloe Blacc, and Jordan Waré. Proceeds benefit the Equal Justice Initiative.
