All ages are welcome to join in this joyous celebration of freedom and African-American culture! Activities include:

A poetry and portraiture mini-workshop led by Quentin Felton will encourage participants to draw inspiration from Lewis Latimer’s life as a writer and poet through a creative writing activity, which will highlight lessons on art and literacy.

Artist Dario Mohr will hold a Sow the Seeds workshop where participants will write an ode to ancestors on seed paper sourced from South African-based company called Growing Paper. The seed cards from this workshop (containing African Daisies), will be planted during a public ceremony in April of 2023 at Old Stone House as a way to create new life from the continent of Africa, on the grounds of Old Stone House.

Artist Sophia Chizuco will lead participants in creating “Our Juneteenth Flag Installation” while teaching about our history.

Participants will also get a chance to practice self-care through learning Reiki from Reiki Master Teacher Erica Thomas Collier!
