This year’s concert will take place on June 8th, 2024, at the historic 1894 Grand Opera House in Galveston, Texas, the birthplace of Juneteenth. Headlining the concert are Grammy Award-winning recording artist Fred Hammond and Galveston’s own The Stinson Five, promising an electrifying night of music and celebration. The event, commencing at 7 p.m. will pay tribute to four of Texas’s most historic Black churches, each holding the distinction of being the first in their denomination.
