Produced by Arts & Learning Conservatory President and CEO Debora Wondercheck, the event was created to provide multi-generational performances of African Americans through the lens and influence of gospel music and other art forms as a source of historical impact and resiliency spanning June 19, 1865 to present day.

“It is a great privilege for me to present diverse talents with a keen focus on the historical significance of Black performers throughout history. The afternoon will be a joyous Juneteenth celebration of freedom and excellence to inspire all people of all ages,” says Wondercheck.

Special musical guest is longtime percussionist for Stevie Wonder and four-time Grammy winner Munyungo Jackson to be featured throughout the concert. Local gospel soloist Sonja Griffin will perform in the highly anticipated gospel choir with artists from throughout So. Calif.
