Black History Month at Juilliard

Juilliard commemorates Black History Month with a tip of the cap to performance highlights from years gone by in this preview of the Library and Archives Black History Month exhibit. Sneak a peek at the exhibit, which celebrates Juilliard’s rich African American performance history.

Commemorations at school this month include workshops and discussions, among them a Diversity Dialogue on February 6 about Juneteenth, the holiday celebrating the end of slavery in the U.S.
