(Still) Live From New York: Works From Home, Ep. 3

On the 19th of June, 1865, Texas became the final state to officially recognize the freedom of enslaved Africans on American soil, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Juneteenth is thus the oldest known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in America. In the 5th year of her annual Juneteenth celebration at Joe’s Pub, pianist Nnenna Ogwo returns with her ever brilliant collaborators, Sterling Strings. The pandemic may have forced us to celebrate digitally, but it will still be a party. In a year of unprecedented challenges to our world and our psyche, now, more than ever we need to make a joyful noise, revel in the creativity of those magnificent musicians of the past and the inheritors of their indomitable spirit. Come celebrate the liberation of Black bodies and minds, and honor their creative musical energy by sharing a night of Black music played by Black musicians.
