Stay Black and Live

By: Laurie Gallardo

Throughout its evolution, the celebrations and remembrances of Juneteenth, marking the end of formal slavery in Texas on June 19, 1865, have provided opportunities for younger generations to keep the stories alive. And every year, new stories are brought to the table. This year’s celebrations in Austin continue online with Stay Black and Live: A Virtual Juneteenth Celebration, featuring live music and poetry performances by local artists; a raffle hosted by Six Square, benefitting the Greater East Austin Youth Association (GEAYA); an online scavenger hunt and much more.

Music performances include artists Nook Turner, Queen Deelah, Anastasia, Eimaral Sol, Alesia Lani (featured on today’s Austin Music Minute), and Riders Against the Storm on the bill. The event is from 6 to 10 p.m. (Central) tonight on the Stay Black and Live Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, the Carver Museum Twitch channel, and on the Stay Black and Live website. The event kicks off with an opening message from District 1 City Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison. and is hosted by Jump On It founder Nook Turner.
