Chicago’s Congo Square Theatre Company, one of the nation’s premier African American theatres, celebrates the Juneteenth holiday with two festive “Homecoming”-themed programs, Sunday, June 19 at the Zhou B Art Center, 1029 W. 35th Street in the Bridgeport neighborhood.

The celebration begins with the return of the company’s popular Festival on the Square, taking place from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. This lively, family-friendly, and FREE program is inspired by the original Congo Square located in New Orleans, and aims to celebrate arts, healing, and Black joy. Themed around “Homecoming,” this year’s Festival will showcase a vibrant collection of live performances, theatrical readings, and Black owned vendors.
