Description

MIDDLETOWN, Calif. — The Middletown Art Center will host “Open Hearts, Open Minds," the fourth annual Juneteenth event on Wednesday, June 19, from 5 to 9 p.m.

This evening of reflection, dialogue, and celebration will feature a distinguished panel discussion, live music, and more.

The event will begin with a panel discussion from 5 to 6 p.m., with doors opening at 4 p.m.

The panel features Aqeela Markowski, host of KPFZ radio's "Women's Voices"; Delores Farrell; Randall Cole, substance abuse counselor, member of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Commission, and author of "Felonies Before Birth"; Kamelle Leggette, a volunteer at Coletrain Transformation Station and author of "How to Survive When the **it Hits the Fan"; and Voris Brumfield, pastor at Middletown Community United Methodist Church.

Starting at 6:30 p.m., Gloria Scott will perform a short selection of soulful songs, followed by music and dancing with Howard Reggie Dockens, providing a celebratory atmosphere to mark the spirit of Juneteenth. Delicious food by Goddess of the Mountain will be available for purchase, along with beverages to enhance the evening's enjoyment.

Tickets for "Open Hearts, Open Minds" will be sold at the door with a suggested donation of $10, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds. This event is an excellent opportunity for community members to come together to learn and to celebrate. Whether you are drawn to the panel discussion, the music, or the food, "Open Hearts, Open Minds" promises an evening of enrichment and connection.
