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. To view a list of the in-person exhibits and virtual events, click the button below.
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. Register for these with the WOW “Meetup” Google Form located on our Juneteenth 2021 Challenge page; or you can click the button below.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we will highlight it on our World of Wellesley Website.
