Hidden in plain sight, New England is overflowing with rich, diverse African-American and African diaspora cultural traditions and history. Select from a multitude of in-person and virtual exhibits on African-American and African diaspora art, movement, song, history to bring yourself, a partner, or the entire family to explore, experience, and engage.

You will not be alone. World of Wellesley Ambassadors will be available to meet up at a few venues to bring a collective together to learn, share, and grow in our understanding of the wealth of African-American and African diaspora history accessible in our local cultural institutions.

The World of Wellesley Juneteenth Challenges runs from June 19th – August 19th 2021.  However, we encourage you to explore the available cultural exhibits throughout the year.

We ask that as you peruse the offerings that you may ponder three questions:

1) What did you SEE?

2) What did you THINK?

3) What did you WONDER?

Then, tell us about it. Create a Juneteenth art piece, share a selfie from your Juneteenth event, or email us with your favorite reflections on the above three questions.  Send it to info@worldofwellesley.org and we will highlight it on our World of Wellesley Website.
