Juke Joints were Black owned and operated establishments where Blacks went to relax and socialize following a hard week of work. They were born during the 1880's in the rural south because Jim Crow laws barred Blacks from attending white establishments. Juke Joints are thought to represent the first "private space" for Blacks.
Join us as we celebrate the early history of Black social recreation, Juke Joints, and our 15th anniversary.
