Celebrating Juneteenth

Happy Juneteenth! This day commemorates the end of slavery in the United States, while also celebrating Black culture. It’s a reminder to learn from our history, while paving a brighter future. ETC believes that we all have a responsibility to listen, reflect, and act to ensure that our industry is accessible, inclusive, and safe for everyone.

Ways to Celebrate Juneteenth

Black professionals have made countless contributions to the theatre industry and beyond! Celebrate them and all aspects of Black culture by attending a Juneteenth event, learning more about anti-racism, or supporting Black organizations and businesses (whether in or out of the theatre).

Don’t know where to get started? Here are some ideas.

While Juneteenth is a meaningful day of celebration, the pursuit of equity, diversity, and inclusion should be a year-round effort. Have any resources or organizations you’d like to share? Drop them in the comments!
