5 Things to do on Juneteenth

Juneteenth, a recognized employee holiday at the Alliance Theatre and now a federal holiday, is more than a day of recognition. It's an opportunity to be reminded that freedom for Black American's, true freedom, is achieved when their work is supported and celebrated. This year we hope you will join the Alliance Theatre in celebrating Juneteenth by supporting these events, artists and organizations.
