Juneteenth 2021: We Rise Up! Virtual Juneteenth Celebration

June 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

The Emancipation Park Conservancy (EPC) invites the Houston community to a virtual experience in honor of the Juneteenth holiday! The theme this year is Freedom and Justice, acknowledging the social injustice and inequality that led to a global reckoning with race and demands of better treatment of historically marginalized groups. Celebrating 149 years, the virtual event will include feel-good spins from DJ Chilly Bill Smith and Rob G, the jaw-dropping rhythm and blues vibes of Vincent Powell, the chilling sounds of Nakitta Clegg-Foxx and close with an electrifying finale community performance.

Additionally, EPC and Lucille’s 1913 are collaborating to feed Houstonians in need. The organizations will supply meals for 2,000 Houstonians and the event is made possible by Lucille’s 1913, H-E-B, Coca-Cola, Reliant, Council Member Carolyn Evans-Shabazz and the Houston Food Bank. It’s open to the public, but registration is required: epconservancy.salsalabs.org/wearejuneteenthiscommunity.
