To celebrate Juneteenth, a historic date that commemorates the emancipation of enslaved people, Crossing Borders Music has commissioned new music of The Honourable Elizabeth A. Baker, Jordyn Davis, and Jessica T. Carter. Be one of the first to hear their awesome music!
The event will take place outside the Garfield Park Gold Dome Fieldhouse.

This program is a part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks.
Celebrating 10 years, Night Out in the Parks activates parks across the city with robust cultural events – bringing neighbors together to laugh, dance, sing, and engage.
This program made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, by the Paul M Angell Family Foundation, The MacArthur Funds for Culture, Equity, and the Arts at the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, and by the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. Crossing Borders Music acknowledges support from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
