Juneteenth Celebration The celebration, which will be held rain or shine, will initially kick off with music by DJ Brighter Daze at 4 p.m. before the live program begins at 6 p.m. The main act, Soul Steps, has been featured on Good Day NY, CBS 2, and at Paris Fashion Week. They will showcase the African American dance tradition known as “Stepping”, a high-energy performance art that combines percussive movement, hip-hop rhythms, and call and response. The celebration also will include an inter-generational panel conversation among local African American families that will be facilitated by Commissioner Director Robinson, a spiritual expression in a dance known as a Ring Shout Circle, a children’s workshop and performance of African dance by Zawadi African Dance & Drum, soul food, and exhibits by local African American-owned businesses. In addition, participants will have an opportunity to watch as artist Raven George creates a painting live during the program.
