The KCAF is pleased to introduce The Black Aura: A Weekend of Liberation and the Arts.

The Black Aura is a response to the city's need to develop a greater sense of identity and clarity around the values associated with Juneteenth.  Scheduled to take place June 28-29, 2024, the weekend between Juneteenth and Independence Day, this artistic experience leverages the arts to illuminate the tensions in our histories and struggles, and the resiliency that has emerged.  Promising a broad array of experiences including performances, documentaries, workshops, the weekend will highlight the aura of “Blackness” and reflect the resilience & humanity of Black people in the arts. The weekend is designed to feature local artists, intentionally building upon and strengthening our collective sense of community in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood and beyond.
