“Juneteenth Street” is the journey of a family, a church, and a community after their patriarch and head Pastor’s death. His loss not only leaves the family reeling, but now the community and church are at risk of being torn down due to gentrification promoted by one of their own. We invite you to join us in the sanctuary of Mount Saint Moses Missionary Baptist Church, where a leader and a community are reminded that true change is found in claiming your legacy.

A discussion with the playwright and cast will follow immediately after the performance.
