7. Honoring Juneteenth (Brooklyn Museum) June 19th 11am and 7pm
On June 19th from 11am and at 7pm, Brooklyn Museum will hold a free outdoor event including musical performances, food, mindfulness, and photography. The Good Company Bike Club, which seeks to unify the Black cyclists, will host its second annual Freedom Ride starting from the steps of the Brooklyn Museum. The ride will focus on locations important to the Black community and will include stops to Black owned restaurants for food and refreshments.
Food for the evening portion of the event will be provided by Black Chef Movement, which connects Black and Brown chefs with one another to provide meals for those in need. At sunset, there will be a meditation for Black lives. The practice of meditating for Black lives draws upon traditional meditation practices and creates an experience for processing trauma and oppression and honoring lives of Black and brown people. The event is free and does not require reservations. More information can be found here.
