Last year, during the early months of grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic, the horrific murder of George Floyd was witnessed throughout the world and the international community exploded in protest.
A year later, we are still on the battlefield–with systematic racism continuing to destroy innocent lives. Those of us who are still here are truly blessed, working collectively and individually for change. Raising our voices, taking to the streets, calling out the lies, calling for justice for all, moving forward, staying hopeful, relishing our resilience, while knowing that the struggle is far from over.
We hope this Juneteenth Day experience will energize, uplift and inspire each of us to recommit, and reconnect as a world community walking courageously forward into the light of truth and freedom…never turning back!
This year Sweet Honey in the Rock is pleased to announce that our featured guests will be joining us from the world of dance!
We welcome choreographer Dianne McIntyre, choreographer and educator, Dr. Halifu Osumare and Washington DC’s own, KanKouran West African Dance Company.
We present this Juneteenth offering, as we remember and honor the lives and sacrifices that brought us to this moment.
Over the last decade, it has become extremely evident that we still have work to do and a way to go and we will NEVER TURN BACK!
Your ticket entitles you to tune in to the June 19th broadcast and watch the performance on-demand for two weeks.
