Juneteenth Community Celebration
Wednesday, June 19, 2024
9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Let’s celebrate African-American culture together with our partner, Silicon Valley African Film Festival (SVAFF). Watch a variety of short animated films, find your rhythm during a drumming workshop, and catch the beat by making your very own drum to practice at home. Discover the vast richness of the African Diaspora through a mix of short films created for children by seasoned and emerging filmmakers that will run throughout the day. Drummer Pope Flyne, a Ghanaian-born performer, composer, and educator, will lead a drumming workshop and invite you to try your hand at some traditional African drums. Then top off the day by making your own percussion instrument!
This program was made possible, in part, by a Cultural Affairs grant from the City of San Jose.
Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose is supported in part by an American Rescue Plan Act grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support general operating expenses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
