Two & 1/2 Years: A Musical Celebration to the Spirit of Juneteenth

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. It was on June 19, 1865, two-and-a-half years after President Lincoln delivered the Emancipation Proclamation, that Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed on Galveston Island, Texas with news that the war had ended and that slaves were now free. Artists and musicians heavily influenced by jazz, blues, and hip hop, Tierney Malone and Robert Hodge will tell this story via a full-length album featuring new music by local and nationally known musicians. The album release party will feature an art exhibition and live performances.
