This year is a defining moment as we aim to make a lasting imprint that will help set the tone for how the nation celebrates Juneteenth for years to come and recognize the contributions of Black Americans! As such, The Juneteenth Foundation is once again hosting a curated week of events: The Juneteenth Freedom Festival. The Festival will kick off with the Juneteenth Honors, an upscale awards show that will bring together African American culture’s biggest names in music, sports, film, and philanthropy.
The Juneteenth Honors is an awards and music show that commemorates our national Juneteenth holiday and the freedom of enslaved African-Americans in 1865. It is an upscale production which highlights Black excellence, our history, and the achievements of African-American luminaries. For this inaugural edition, we will be joined by some of the world’s largest names in entertainment, music, and culture. Think the Grammys but better, with an emphasis on black culture, music, and entertainment.
