Healing of Nations Foundation in association with Carnegie Hall Presents the Fifth Annual Juneteenth Celebration All American Freedom Day. In the spirit of the first Juneteenth celebrations in Texas in 1865, this celebration will include music, dance and, of course, messages challenging us to continue our efforts to become “a more perfect Union”. Channeling the wisdom and convictions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this year’s event embraces a theme of All America Freedom Day. 

The event honors individuals who have a commitment to civil rights and have been champions of justice for oppressors and the oppressed. Our invited honorees include Bishop Michael B. Curry, who delivered the homily at the royal wedding, and Bree Newsome Bass, who scaled the flag pole to remove the Confederate flag. Acclaimed broadcast journalist, Soledad O’Brien will serve as the evening’s Mistress of Ceremony. The creative Spirit will nurture us through the talents of Wycliffe Gordon, Cyrus Chestnut, Ebony Ecumenical Ensemble, and others.
