Celebrate Juneteenth weekend at the Weusi Art Exhibition at Art Share LA in the downtown Arts district as we explore healing arts such as; music, art, dance, poetry, video and live drama to address the legacy of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and our quest for total liberation. We’ve named this event Weusi because it’s the Swahili word for “black” and this holiday, we’re celebrating black excellence!
