ICA: Juneteenth

Juneteenth (June 19th) is known affectionately to many as “Freedom Day.” It is the day in 1865 when the last group of enslaved African Americans were informed of their freedom following the end of the American Civil War.

Get ready to get off the couch and move your feet—the ICA’s virtual Juneteenth Celebration is going to be a virtual dance party, “exploring how much musical innovation is an ingrained part of the Black legacy.” Four DJs from across the country, including Boston’s EARTHACLIT, will curate musical selections honoring the African Diaspora, and they’ll all be donating their tips to Boston’s Ujima Project and the National Bailout Fund.
