This year, Juneteenth is especially important, as the country grapples with centuries of anti-Black violence, discrimination and marginalization.  Read the statement we released on June 5 here.

The arts give us a way to make sense of difficult experiences, exploring them with the power that creative expression offers. We invite you to join us in commemorating and celebrating Juneteenth by sharing your own reflections on this important day, be it through images, music, language, or another type of art or craft form that inspires you.  Thank you for your contribution.
