Juneteenth, or Emancipation Day, the commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States originated in Texas. Artists Autumn Ewalt and Dharmesh Patel, creators of the adjacent public art piece made of 9,000 prisms entitled Sunrise, Sunset (Revolution), share tales of celebrating in Texas. Make your light-catcher inspired by the art. The Federation of Black Cowboys returns to BPC with their horses and share stories. Music by Noami Shelton and the Gospel Queens and spoken word by Zell Miller III.
