JUNETEENTH - A ROOT (ROUTE) MEMORY


  • 1103 Biscayne Boulevard Miami, FL, 33132 United States (map)

The celebration of “Juneteenth” originated on June 19, 1865, when the enslaved people of Texas finally learned about their freedom – two years and six months after President Lincoln’s “Emancipation Proclamation”. Across the Diaspora, questions of identity, colorism, labor, and geography continue to impact people of African descent. This program offers a lens, from both a historical as well as contemporary perspective, through which we can view how resistance, persistence, and self-determination have been the key to survival for people of African descent, and the basis for their achievements above and beyond geographical borders and external expectations.
