The Grand Collab with BeerMoney UNLTD and Locally Fresh in May

Here's a last-minute addition to your Juneteenth celebration plans: a socially distant way to get together to celebrate Blackness, with a renewed focus on fighting racism.

The Organize Florida Education Fund is teaming up with Orlando's the Grand Collab to host a "Juneteenth Virtual Jubilee" live on Twitch tonight, Friday, starting at 8.

The evening will feature Central Florida DJs and MCs, including DJ Bonita Vibez and a closing set by DJ Nigel – along with an "uplifting conversation" hosted by Locally Fresh about why Juneteenth should become a federal holiday.

Here's the full show lineup:

  • 8-8:10 p.m.: Intro - Locally Fresh
  • 8:10-8:30 p.m.: DJ Bonita Vibez
