Broadway Celebrates Juneteenth 2024

I’m so excited to tell you all about Broadway Celebrates Juneteenth – an amazing outdoor concert event all about celebrating Black artistry and community. The heart and soul of this event are the phenomenal Black performers and allies who create and star in it. It’s a diverse showcase of Broadway talents, presenting their distinctive artistry for all to appreciate.

One of the most awaited parts of the celebration is the yearly Legacy Award, presented to remarkable Black artists who’ve made an unforgettable impact on Broadway through their outstanding community involvement and accomplishments.

When and where?

The Broadway League’s Black to Broadway Initiative has not announced the date and details for this year’s event yet.

Who is performing?

In 2023, there were performances from over 25 Black artists representing a variety of Broadway shows. And guess what? We even got a special sneak peek performance of the highly anticipated Broadway musical The Wiz! The Music Performance Trust Fund and Film Funds were there too, to ensure that our day was filled with fantastic live music.

The list of Broadway shows represented at Broadway Celebrates Juneteenth is truly stellar:

Some of them just have been awarded with the Tony Award!

As a cherry on top, we’ll be treated to a special musical number performed by the talented young stars from current and recent Broadway productions.
