Juneteenth (June 19th) is known affectionately to many African Americans as “Freedom Day.” It is the day in 1865 when the last group of enslaved African Americans were informed of their freedom following the end of the American Civil War.


Join us for Freedom Fête: A Virtual Juneteenth Celebration. A virtual dance party exploring how much musical innovation is an ingrained part of the Black legacy. Genres innovated by Black musicians include gospel, jazz, blues, salsa, R&B, rock and roll, soul, funk, house, techno, hip-hop, and so much more.


Four DJs from around the U.S. will celebrate the beauty and contributions of the African Diaspora in their musical selections, while keeping us grooving and donating to two stellar organizations. Featuring:


Ash Lauryn (ATL)
Turtle Bugg (NYC/Detroit)
Dee Diggs (NYC)
EARTHACLIT (Boston)
