at The Hempsted Houses in New London!
Performers include the Community Choir, a gospel choir organized by local churches; drummer Dwight Baldwin; Lillian Cook’s The Lion's Den Dance Company; and Adowa Bandele Asante, portraying Harriet Tubman in the years after the Civil War. Food vendors are a Taste of New Orleans and Sweetie's Bakery and Cafe.
Juneteenth began as a commemoration of abolition in Texas in 1865, but now celebrates the end of slavery across the U.S. South. The Hempsted Houses are at the heart of the city’s first African-American neighborhood.

The mural be hung at 832 Chapel Street (Foot Locker building wall facing Kresge parking lot, pictured below on right) and created on site between the hours of 3pm-7pm each day. This collaborative mural project will give community members a look into the chemistry between the two artists while they create side by side. This event coincided with the opening weekend of the International Festival of Arts and Ideas and is visible from the green near the corner of Church and Chapel.
