Block Party at 16 Jones St.
(in front of GH Pottery)
Greenwich House, Little Mozart Foundation, and Ars Nova are thrilled to present the third annual celebration of Juneteenth, the day that word of emancipation reached Black enslaved people and ensured the freedom of all Americans. Curated by the creative talents of Mahayla Laurence and David Adewumi, we will commemorate this historic day with an intergenerational investigation of the struggle toward freedom, the joy of liberation, and value of Black cultural exploration. Festivities are for all ages and will include music, games, storytelling, crafts, and plenty of fun!
Join us as we deepen our relationship with our liberated selves and experience the excellence of Black artistic expression and its use for the fight for freedom.
