Third Annual Juneteenth Celebration
June 19, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
Van Cortlandt Park Alliance and Bronx Arts Ensemble invite you to an evening celebration of Juneteenth.
The program will begin on the back deck of the Van Cortlandt Golf House with performances, including music and spoken word. Then join us for a procession with drums to the Enslaved African Burial Ground for a libation ceremony, honoring the memory of the enslaved people.
Guest artists include renowned drummer Baba Don Babatunde, actress Ashley Hart Adams, violist Judith Insell, Courtney Carey Stars of Tomorrow Concert Chorale, and West African drummer Yahaya Kamate. Meet Ghanaian-born artist Tijay Mohammed, whose 18-foot installation Baobab Tree of Life is adjacent to the Enslaved African Burial Ground.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council.
