2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Carolyn will produce the annual Juneteenth Festival in Chester. Juneteenth is an annual day of observance that commemorates the enforcement by Union soldiers of the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed all remaining slaves in Texas on June 19, 1865. The Saturday celebration will showcase music, dance, drumming, spoken word, and local food and crafts vendors, as well as activities for youth. The presentation and continuation of this festival in Chester plays an important role in re-shaping attitudes, countering cultural stereotypes, and preserving and fostering community pride in her predominantly Black neighborhood.
