On the historic date of June 19th, known as Juneteenth, the Brandon Blackwood Foundation will launch the organization as a powerful statement to ignite innovation, action, and collaboration among creatives of color. Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in the United States. It serves as a poignant reminder of the resilience, strength, and enduring spirit of Black communities throughout history.
By choosing Juneteenth to inaugurate the Foundation, Brandon Blackwood symbolically aligns his mission with the ongoing fight for liberation, empowerment, and systemic change.
The launch of the Foundation on Juneteenth honors the past and embraces the future. By harnessing the power of philanthropy and collective action, the Foundation strives to create lasting impact, supporting initiatives that address social disparities, amplify underrepresented voices, and promote access to education, opportunities, and resources for creatives and communities of color.
