Juneteenth Jamboree

Celebrate Juneteenth led by three powerhouse artists of color who use their music as a vehicle for community organizing. Join Kyshona, Grace Givertz and front line activist Sam Rise as they sing the music of freedom movements and pay tribute to the incredible storytelling, oral traditions and sonic contributions of the seminal Elizabeth Cotten, roots chameleon Ruthie Foster and civil rights icons Odetta, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Toshi Reagon and Bernice Johnson Reagon.

Reservations are highly recommended and will be made available at dukearts.org. Tickets for this free event are always claimed quickly, so book as early as possible. They will also accept walk-ups on the day of the event on a first-come, first-served basis until the event has reached capacity.
