Watch: Juneteenth: Creating Legacy in Contested Places
Join us online for an afternoon of music, conversation, and reflection.
Chef and historian Therese Nelson, Dr. Andrea Roberts, founder of Texas Freedom Colonies Project, and chef and TV personality Carla Hall, author of Carla’s Comfort Food: Favorite Dishes from Around the World, examine the artful negotiations of formerly enslaved African Americans and celebrate the persistent pursuit of freedom. Plus, Rootstock Republic premieres a new arrangement of "Strange Fruit," the classic song, made famous by Billie Holiday, which called attention to the lynching of Black people in America.
