“Juneteenth [is] an affirmation that despite the most painful parts of our history, change is possible—and there is still so much work to do.” – President Barack Obama

Come celebrate Juneteenth with your Tampa Bay community and Community Radio Station! WMNF 88.5FM recognizes Juneteenth with an array of Black excellence, featuring local Tampa Bay spoken word poets, Soul Caravan starring Theo Valentin, Rita Wilson, Tron Montgomery, and Hiram Hazley wtih Musical Directors Kenny Walker &  Vincent Sims! Expect the best renditions of Earth, Wind and Fire, a soul revue, as well as poet Gemini Fox and Donald L. Dowridge, Jr. as Frederick Douglass opening the show, all while connecting with neighbors and friends.

Honor this historical holiday with great music, dancing in the aisles, friendly company, and WMNF!

“Juneteenth allows us to remember how far Black people have progressed and it is a reminder of the strength we have within us.” – Bethel Kyeza

In addition, WMNF is thrilled to honor this holiday with The Palladium Theater! Established by art philanthropists in 1998, the historic theater’s mission has always been to serve all of Tampa Bay as a performing arts center that welcomes everyone and serves the entire community with artistically and culturally diverse performing arts and programs. As two organizations that put community first, WMNF and The Palladium hope you join us in celebrating Juneteenth this year!

“Even in the face of a broken system, we choose to find joy in resistance and celebrate in community.” – Obrian Rosario
