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.

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.
