Juneteenth at BCPL Join us for a community celebration and educational experience honoring Juneteenth!

Enjoy a variety of virtual events featuring local Black voices, entrepreneurs, artists, and thinkers. In addition, there will be prize opportunities, online activities, and onsite giveaways at all five BCPL locations—including delicious cornbread samples from Garden Girl Foods while supplies last!

Live virtual sessions throughout the afternoon will be moderated by local media personality and entrepreneur Chea K. Woolfolk. Guest presenters will include:

  • Kentucky State Representative Attica Scott
  • AIKCU President Dr. OJ Oleka
  • Whitney Washington-Powers of Garden Girl Foods

Viewers will have a unique opportunity to learn, enjoy, and ask questions of the presenters via Zoom or Facebook LIVE.

In addition, the Juneteenth virtual offerings will include a prerecorded jazz performance by Kiana Benhoff and limited-time free access to view A Tribe Called Tubman by playwright Idris Goodman.
