What is Juneteenth Jazz?



"Juneteenth is a landmark in history, a celebration of freedom and the end of slavery in America.
Juneteenth Jazz is dedicated to the preservation of the unique aesthetic expression of freedom through jazz,
and the spiritual essence of a people whose lives continue to be the creative catalyst of the roots of all America's music.
Juneteenth Jazz is dedicated to the innovators of this great music and the economic, cultural and educational
development of the historic community that produced America's most intellectually sophisticated musical
expression of freedom for all the world to enjoy."
   Rev. Ronald V. Myers, Sr., M.D.
