LEIMERT PARK RISING JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION 2021
We are a black arts and culture community-driven festival celebrating the emancipation proclamation in the historic Leimert Park Village.
Every year since June 19th, 1865, the Black community has come together in the spirit of freedom. A freedom that still prevails despite systemic threats to existence. Forty years ago Robert Leonard began the tradition of Juneteenth in Leimert Park Village. Since then, it has continued to be celebrated in varying ways.
In 2018, a few dedicated creatives came together to put on the first ever Leimert Park Rising: Juneteenth Celebration. True to the essence of Leimert Park, this event celebrated Black freedom by honoring the ancestors and our community through art, music, food and education.
