Streamed live on Jun 19, 2022: “For a fourth consecutive year, The Healing of the Nations Foundation in association with Carnegie Hall presents the 2022 Juneteenth Celebration. Founded in 2007 by the Reverend Dr. James A. Forbes, Jr., the mission of the Healing of the Nations Foundation is to promote the recovery of the moral and spiritual values that inspired our Nation’s founding. Through music, dance, and commentary, Rev. Dr. James A. Forbes, Jr. leads this celebration to recognize the importance of this historic day and to acknowledge the long road still ahead. The evening will commemorate the important contributions that African Americans have made to the United States, honoring educator and poet, Sonia Sanchez and community activist Opal Lee.
