Juneteenth 2021: Stay Black and Live Vol. 2 is a city wide Juneteenth festival presented by Six Square, CarverMuseumATX, and the Black Austin Coalition, in partnership with Jump On It, the Austin Area Urban League, Austin Justice Coalition, and GEAYA.
A year after we transformed the Juneteenth festivities from a parade and block party to a virtual festival, this year’s theme reflects on Black people’s initiative and willpower to free themselves because no one else will do it for us, and how it is through our collective strength that we have made our mark wherever we go.
The day long celebration kicks off with a car parade hosted by the Austin Area Urban League and GEAYA. During lunchtime, the 10,000 Fearless First Responders and will be distributing free plates to the communities most in need on the East side.
Six Square and CarverMuseumATX’s virtual program will start with a panel discussion about the history and celebration of Juneteenth with speakers Dr. Lisa B. Thompson and Dr. Charles Daniel Carson of UT Austin’s African and African Studies department and moderated by Carre Adams, manager of the Carver Museum.
Our MC NOOK will introduce Freedom Desk, a music and spoken word performance series that will feature artists from the Austin/Travis County area. The lineup includes: Riders Against the Storm, Eimaral Sol, Melat, Chakeeta B, and more!
We’ll also have a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses. Proceeds will benefit Six Square as they continue to tirelessly serve the African-American community in Austin.
During the evening we’ll keep the party going at Rosewood Park with a live afterparty hosted by Jump On It and GEAYA. The night will end with a fireworks show by Austin Justice Coalition.
