“It’s a new dawn.  It’s a new day and I am feeling good.”

– Lyrics from I Am Feeling Good sung by Nina Simone


It's A New Day!

Saturday, June 15, 2024

7 pm to 11 pm

at The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art
600 Main Street, Hartford, Connecticut

Be prepared to experience A New Day!  at The Amistad Center for Art & Culture’s 33rd Juneteenth Gala!  Enjoy music across the diaspora, soulful cuisine, a live auction and dance the night away with old and new friends. This annual gala celebrates the joy and triumph that enslaved African Americans in Texas felt on June 19, 1865 when they received word of their freedom.  The news of freedom arrived two years late, nevertheless, there was jubilation and a new dawn and a new day had begun.


Join us in celebrating freedom with joy and exultation.  More details, and upcoming sponsorship and ticket information are coming soon!
