Fly: A Celebration of Juneteenth

Wednesday, June 19th at 7pm
Join us to celebrate Juneteenth with African dance, music, and aerial arts!
Presented with Hawai'i Jazz, Jazz Maui, and Mana'o Radio

Of all our national holidays, Juneteenth National Independence Day commemorates not just the ending of legal slavery in the United States, but the ending of legalized ideologies of supremacy and racial separation. Juneteenth uplifts the ideals of true and total freedom and justice for all. It’s one of the few, perhaps the only holidays globally, that commemorates legal practices of human rights, dismantling legal inequity and civil unrest. In a world of that commemorates conquerors, political figures, war, and martyrs,  this holiday is a significant treasure to celebrate for the progress of humanity.
