When I received the call to collaborate with Da Spot NYC Boutique and Manifeast for a Juneteenth Celebration at City Point Mall, I was absolutely stoked! The idea of creating a floral installation commemorating such a historic day for Black culture and pride.
As of 2021, Juneteeth is now a national holiday celebratated on June 19th in honor of the emancipation of Black slaves in the U.S.
