RITE OUT LOUD: A Forum with Black Artists and Cultural/Arts Leaders
Friday, June 19, 2020
6:00 PM CDT
Join us on Juneteenth to listen to leading Black voices in the arts and cultural community. We will discuss how far this country has come since the first Juneteenth and the great distance we still need to go. We will take time to reflect upon the many lives taken in the context of institutionalized violence against the Black community.
Hosted by Cheles Rhynes and Austin Scottish Rite Theater.
