In honor of Juneteenth & Loc Appreciation Day, this past Saturday on June 16th Drlocs presented “Black Excellence Forever.” Which turned out to be an extremely breathtaking event. The venue, the food, the people, and the entertainment were incredible!

 

What is Juneteenth?  

Also known as Freedom day or Emancipation Day. Juneteenth(June 19th) is a special day which celebrates the emancipation of the last enslaved people of the United States. 

 

What is Loc Appreciation Day?  

Loc Appreciation Day was first created & celebrated in 2011 by Youtuber Quochemist. Which falls on the fourth Saturday of every June. This is a day to take the time to celebrate & show appreciation for locs.

 

These two events have a very positive way of bringing the African American culture together to celebrate freedom & beauty. Therefore Drlocs decided to combine the two special occasions & have one huge celebration. Presenting “Black Excellence Forever” showcasing artist who created pieces which depicted Black Art.
