Juneteenth 2020: A Day Of Reflection, Solidarity & Empowerment

Studio 512

Juneteenth’s 155-year history holds a lot of meaning in the fight for racial injustice today. The “Live Music Capital Of The World” is celebrating with art and performances.

“Stay Black and Live” is a virtual Juneteenth festival. A collaboration with several Black organizations in Austin’s historic East side.

“Stay Black and Live” will be streaming across multiple online platforms (Facebook, Instagram, and on the Juneteenth website) starting at 6pm.

You can sweeten up your celebration with Tiny Pies.

In honor of Juneteenth, Tiny Pies are donating a portion of their weekend sales from all three of their locations to the NAACP.

And a group of young local artists are putting together a two-day art show and sale this weekend. All proceeds will benefit Black Visions Collective, Austin Justice Coalition and the Family of Mike Ramos.

The Burlap Bag is showing their support and giving away 100% of the purchase price of The Solidarity Candle, which is scented with ginger and lime.
