Juneteenth: Remembrance and Celebration

Juneteenth: Remembrance and Celebration, uses music from Black American composers to highlight progress and the pain that has been held in the community at large. Using the commemoration of the emancipation of all those who had been enslaved in United States as a starting point, the special will face our country’s racist past and present a tapestry of sounds, somber to ecstatic.
