KEXP

This Sunday, June 19th, KEXP will observe Juneteenth — the holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States — with day-long programming celebrating freedom, achievement, education, and building bridges. Starting at 9:00 AM PT with Preachin’ the Blues and ending at 2:00 AM PT with Jazz Theatre, we'll spotlight artists whose work celebrates the African American experience. The events of 1865 in Texas are not forgotten, and we are moving forward and (as DJ Riz puts it) "stirring the great pot that makes this country what it is today." For the occasion, Riz has compiled this Video Roundup. Enjoy below, and tune in this Sunday for even more.
