Juneteenth Social Justice Performance – June 19 at Community Place

On Friday, June 19, BIO/DANCE and Social Justice will be presented at Community Place of Greater Rochester (145 Parsells Ave., Rochester, NY) in a free, public performance at 12:30pm.  On this day, we commemorate Juneteenth, the ending of slavery in the United States.  But we also mourn on this day, the nine victims of the atrocious Charleston Church shooting – nine innocent African American citizens of our country.  While we struggle to understand how it is possible for this type of hate crime, and so many other losses where race, difference, religion and fear play a main role, to continue in 2015, we offer our work as a way to open a dialogue about these issues, as way to share the beauty of difference, and as a way to honor justice and equality and humanity.
