For the Culture: Honor It! Celebrate It! Amplify It!

On Saturday, June 15, 2024, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute is excited to host its annual Juneteenth Celebration featuring music, dance, health, wellness, history, heritage, STEAM enrichment, and sports.

Along 16th Street between 3rd Avenue and 6th Avenue, guests will be able to connect with culture through genealogy workshops, dance classes, documentaries, story time, food, shopping and more! BCRI’s permanent galleries will also be free throughout the day.
