Our 2020 Juneteenth Jubilee went virtual. Juneteenth marks the American holiday commemorating the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of the remaining enslaved African Americans in the Confederacy.
Every year we host a Juneteenth Jubilee to mark and celebrate this day of freedom. You are invited to join us as we celebrate this profoundly historic date through music, drama, and art. This year’s second annual celebration is virtual due to COVID-19.
A new episode of the seven part series was broadcast each Friday beginning June 19th through August 7th on Wave Country with Dawne Gee on WAVE 3 and all episodes are available to view below.
