Black & Tan Fantasy Festival-Program 3: Many Fabrics One Quilt
We continue our Juneteenth celebration with a tapestry of music, performance art, spoken word, dance, and poetry. Our quilt encompasses the many textiles of diversity reflecting our experiences as Same Gender Loving African Americans knitting our multiple identities into our Fabric of Brotherhood.
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19th as the African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and beyond. Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas a month marked with celebrations. It is a time for reflection and rejoicing. It is a time for assessment, self-improvement and for planning the future.
