Juneteenth at Hale

“If you have come here to help me you are wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”—Lilla Watson

Hale is glad to celebrate Juneteenth with support from The Margaret Stewart Lindsay Foundation and in partnership with Inclusive Westwood and Westwood Public Schools Office of Equity, Integration, and Community Partnerships. Funding is provided by METCO HQ in partnership with BASI/OTB Act 2.

From June 17–19, we’ll observe the holiday with film, theater, music, poetry, dance, and more. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend these events that commemorate the abolition of slavery and liberation of Black people in the United States. Learn more about each of the events, or if you’re ready to register, you may do so below.

For Black participants, we hope it is a truly joyous experience! For participants of other races and backgrounds, we hope you will celebrate, reflect, and recommit to the work of ending racism in our society. Click here to learn more about why the manner in which we observe this holiday matters.

While these events are free and open to the public, if you’re willing and able to make a gift, we sincerely appreciate donations to support socially conscious art programs at Hale.
