Zion Cathedral Church of God in Christ is gearing up for their 3rd annual Juneteenth celebration, “UBORA: Celebrating the Sound of Black Excellence,” on June 22nd, 2024, at 6 pm. This free event, held at the church (312 Grand Avenue, Freeport, NY), promises an evening of inspiration, community, and recognition of local African American trailblazers.

UBORA 2024 shines a spotlight on Black pioneers who’ve significantly impacted Long Island and the Greater New York area. Expect a blend of powerful music, inspiring speeches, an awards ceremony, museum exhibits, delicious food, and more.

Grammy-nominated pianist Roger L. Jones II and his band, Roger Jones & Higher Calling, will headline the entertainment. Renowned for their electrifying performances, they’re sure to deliver an unforgettable musical experience.

Nineteen distinguished leaders across various fields like education, business, and ministry will be honored during the event. These include Alexis C. Roberts, Bishop Andy C. Lewter, and Professor James Hall, among others.

Adding to the evening’s cultural richness will be performances by Otis Becoat, Sanfu Stoney & Dancers, Voices of Judah of Bethlehem, and the Youth and Dance Ensemble.

“Zion Cathedral is proud to celebrate Black excellence,” says Bishop Frank A. White, Pastor of Zion Cathedral. “UBORA acknowledges the incredible, yet often overlooked, contributions of African Americans in our country.”

Sponsored by Vision 2024, the event will also feature the Black History Mobile Museum. Tickets for the ceremony and museum access are $86 at [zioncathedral.ticketlocity.com].
