Weekend Arts Preview 6/19-6/21

Friday, June 19 is Juneteenth, a celebration of the emancipation of enslaved people in the United States. This Juneteenth weekend, we invite you to explore virtual events on the importance and history of Black music, museums and cultural competency, and the virtual Jefferson Street Jazz & Blues Festival. Plus, join the Frist Art Museum for an online conversation with Donna Woodley, whose paintings are featured in their current online exhibit We Count: First Time Voters, and the Belcourt Theater for an online screening of Words Caught in My Throat followed by a discussion of the impact of muted power on Women and Girls of Color. Through the arts, we are able to both celebrate freedom and interrogate the inequities that still exist today.
