This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Throughout the Museum Honor Juneteenth—the annual holiday commemorating the end of legal slavery in the United States—with a full day of activities celebrating self-expression, community, and Black liberation and creativity. Taking place on Father’s Day, this year’s event will feature activities for the whole family. In the morning, join Good Company Bike Club to kick off their Freedom Ride, a daylong tour of historic Brooklyn locations and landmarks relevant to the Black community, including stops at Black-owned restaurants to rest and replenish. To register for this ride, visit Good Company Bike Club. Then, participate in Kemetic breathwork, drawn from a form of yoga inspired by ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, and meditation for liberation led by Maya Eberhart and Steven Rousseau. Plus, enjoy poetry performances within the galleries, presented by the Breathing Space. Throughout the day, families can join family programming partners Cool Culture and Culture Connected for drop-in art-making, a reading corner, a sound bath with Rena Anakwe, book giveaways, an Afrocentric dance workshop with Tiffany Barett, and more in the outdoor space behind the Museum. Conclude the afternoon, or get your night started, with Brown Sugar Bounce, a celebration of Blackness and soulful music in its purest form featuring music by ClassicNewWave. Throughout the performance, participate in community portraits by Brooklyn photography collective Souls in Focus. This program is free, but please RSVP. Programming developed in partnership with The Culture LP, which is celebrating ten years of uplifting the global majority through the power of the arts.
