    The DuSable Black History Museum is hosting a spectacular celebration in honor of Juneteenth, the federal holiday that commemorates the end of slavery in America. Perry Irmer, the president and CEO of the museum, joins us to discuss the exciting events taking place.
    The festivities at the museum will be held all day long, starting from 10 AM and lasting until 8 PM. In addition to the traditional Juneteenth barbecues, attendees have the option to bring their own grills and enjoy some outdoor cooking. Food trucks will also be available for those who prefer a variety of flavors.
    Notably, this year's celebration also marks the 50th anniversary of hip hop, bringing a unique twist to the event. Cool Modi, a renowned hip hop artist, will be participating in a panel discussion as well as performing on stage later in the evening. The museum is adorned with captivating art and exhibits, providing a rich cultural experience for visitors of all ages.
    The Juneteenth celebration at DuSable Museum also includes activities for the entire family to enjoy. There will be horse and pony rides, a petting zoo, and various musical performances, including a show by The Happiness Club. Furthermore, the museum will be honoring George Daniels, a prominent figure in Chicago's music scene who played a pivotal role in promoting hip hop artists through record sales and radio stations.
    This freedom day is a moment of joy and unity, and the DuSable Black History Museum and Education Center aims to bring all members of the community together to celebrate. With its captivating exhibits, memorable performances, and engaging activities, this event promises to be a truly unforgettable Juneteenth experience.

  • Yeah, Perry, so let's talk about this on a personal level.
  • What would you say Juneteenth means to you?
  • And why do you think it's important for us to remember it for people to come together and celebrate and recognize this day?
  • Well, you know when you go to the origins of Juneteenth, what was it about?
  • It was about truth and it was about knowledge and awareness, right?
  • The people in Texas didn't find out until a year and a half after freedom was was decreed that they were free people, right?
  • And so it's about keeping knowledge from people and it has a great impact on today because what do we have going on in some places?
  • Prevention of learning of knowledge of history and so we are destined to repeat bad history unless we learn where we came from, why we are in the position we're in today, and most importantly, what to do to make good history going forward.
  • And that's based on education and knowledge and awareness.
  • And those are the cures to racism and bigotry and hatred.
  • Our awareness and familiarity and understanding that we're so much more alike than we are different.
  • Perry Erber, CEO of the DeSalvo Foundation, Black History Museum.
  • Get a big Juneteenth celebration happening today.
  • Thanks so much for being with us.
  • Thank you so much for having me.
  • To have a great day.
