The National Juneteenth Foundation - one of the leading organizations responsible for championing the call to codify and indoctrinate Juneteenth as a federally recognized holiday, is set to host its 4th annual star-studded Juneteenth Honors Festival. This year’s exclusive event has been curated to bring together an intimate celebration with stakeholders with the goal of highlighting notable contributions from Black Americans in various professional industries of impact. 

Juneteenth Honors has received much fanfare in the past, featuring performances by Ashanti, Lalah Hathaway, Maxwell, and TI. Past honorees include the likes of Cathy Hughes, Tamika Mallory, Herbie Hancock and Congresswoman Maxine Waters. 

This year’s event will feature TinyDesk style musical performances headlined by Musiq Soulchild and featuring recording artist Maysa, as well as the Howard Gospel Choir. The 2024 list of honorees includes Presidential Lifetime Achievement awardee, Dr. Clarence B Jones, who served as attorney and speech writer to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, as well as other notables.

The Juneteenth Foundation creates a profoundly effectual weekend to celebrate black culture, achievement, and excellence. To multiply that impact, the foundation has partnered with several educational institutions and major corporate sponsors, including General Motors, Santander Bank, and T-Mobile, to award over $100,000 in scholarships to 20 bright and deserving HBCU students this year.
