2. Commemorate Juneteenth with Afriky Lolo Dance! Afriky Lolo Dance performance featuring Diadie Bathily.

Sunday, June 14
2:00 PM

Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the United States and celebrates African American achievement through education. Katherine Dunham's teachings and influence have become an integral part of dance expression. Her movements developed from African Dance show the cultural heritage and mark passages through life's transitions. Therefore it is fitting that we observe Juneteenth with a performance by choreographer Diadie Bathily and his dance troupe, Afriky Lolo, as they demonstrate the beauty of West African Dance.
