Juneteenth 2020: Stay Black and Live
June 19, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Juneteenth 2020: Stay Black and Live is a virtual collaboration with several Black organizations in Austin’s historic East side (G.E.A.Y.A., Six Square, CarverMuseumATX, Carver Library, and Jump On It). This year’s Juneteenth celebration emphasizes not only the timeless themes of freedom and perseverance, but also recognizes the unprecedented times we’re currently living through.
Before the online program starts, the 10,000 Fearless First Responders will be distributing free plates to the communities most in need on the East side. The event will be streaming across multiple online platforms on June 19, with City Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison kicking off the festivities with a welcome message. NOOK will then introduce Freedom Desk, the music and spoken word performance series that will feature artists from the Austin/Travis County area.
