Florida International University will mark the start of a new tradition with the first Juneteenth Freedom Day Celebration. Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. This free community event will feature music by DJ OSOCITY and Curtis Lundy and the All-Star Band, as well as a step show, poets, local artisan vendors, raffles, and more.
The Frost Art Museum-FIU also will host art activities and guided tours of its newest exhibitions, including Place and Purpose: Art Transformation in Coconut Grove, an exhibition detailing the history of Coconut Grove as a local haven in the 1960s for a diverse group of artists, writers, musicians, and art galleries.

We are inviting a limited in-person audience to enjoy the show, and also providing a free live-stream.
