The first story (August 3) is about Blue, a young man of Jamaican descent living in Brixton in 1980, as he hangs out with his friends, fronts a dub sound system, loses his job, struggles with family problems and has his friendships tested by racism.

Second story (August 4) will be about making it in the music business in Kingston, Jamaica, nobody knows it better than regularly unemployed drummer Horsemouth (Leroy Wallace). Although talented, he earns precious little for his music and is obliged to try hustling vinyl records on the side. It's a lousy gig, but Horsemouth takes his lumps amiably, until some brash members of the local Mafia steal his motorbike. Determined to get it back, he and his friends concoct a daring scheme.

The Office of Equity and Inclusion in partnership with Black Employees Support Team (BEST) and Office of Arts and Culture Community Artist Program (CAP) hosted a Juneteenth celebration in the Main Lobby of City Hall. The theme was “Juneteenth: A Day of Acknowledgement.” During the event, City departments had the opportunity to share what Juneteenth means to their department and its impact.

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when the news of emancipation was received in Texas. This day was recognized as a federal holiday on June 19, 2021, marking the 156th anniversary of the announcement.

The City of Dallas invites you to honor and celebrate Juneteenth with our annual flag raising. In the event of rain, the festivities will be moved to City Hall Lobby.

Don't miss the last of Lakefront Live! Concert Series, Sunbuzzed.

Sunbuzzed is Lo Ramirez on guitar and vocals, Cari Cinquemani on lead guitar, Daniel Serrano on keys, and Ellie Alonzo on drums. Sunbuzzed creates a fresh, genre blending mold of psychedelia that is raw, heavy, and at times intensely dark. Their music and imagery are especially influenced by Tejano culture, occultism, astrology, and other esotericism.

When: TODAY, June 6 at 7:30 pm
Where: 521 East Lawther Drive

We have some seating available, but please feel free to bring your chairs and blankets!
