News – NPR – Juneteenth festival planned for Jeffersonville next month

Juneteenth festival planned for Jeffersonville next month

A Southern Indiana resident and business owner is partnering with community members and agencies to plan a three-day Juneteenth festival in Jeffersonville next month.

Juneteenth commemorates the day in 1865 when many of the last enslaved African American learned that they had been freed under the previously enacted Emancipation Proclamation.

Miguel Hampton, owner at F5 Enterprises LLC, wants to bring the community together to share in that celebration next month. He also hopes it’s a space to help educate on what freedom really means, the challenges that still exist in Black and Brown communities and the historical contributions of local Black residents.

“This is for us a first step,” he said. “We should be celebrating Juneteenth and African American history every day like we celebrate and teach all history.”

The festival kicks off June 15 with a panel discussion luncheon on economic health and wellness at Community Action of Southern Indiana. The discussion is part of a series of talks centered around resource accessibility, equality and equity through a partnership between F5 Enterprises and New Hope Services, Inc.

The celebration continues into June 16 and June 17 with an art show featuring Black, Indigenous and other artists of color, food trucks and vendors, games, music and a pop-up museum showcasing the accomplishments of local Black residents.

“Part of us having a Juneteenth Celebration in Jeffersonville, [in] Southern Indiana of this magnitude is really about educating us as a people — where we come from, what has happened in our country,” Hampton said.

“The other part is to encourage Black families as well as white families to really learn our history and to talk about it. Let’s experience this culture together.”

He said it’s also important to understand what freedom has meant to Black people in the United States.

“Juneteenth is an embodiment of really understanding African American history, American history, how we persevered against all odds, and in the face of adversity, how we still continue to show up [and] have hope that at some point in time that in this country, we will find both equality and equity,” Hampton said.

Art show participants have been selected and will be announced soon.

Black and other vendors of color can get a discount on space rental.All events are free, but registration is required for the panel discussion on June 15..

Healing In The Valley

HIV STIGMA STORY

HEALING IN THE VALLEY

A Short Documentary on HIV Stigma in the Black Community

HEALING IN THE VALLEY

Healing in the Valley highlights stories of African Americans living with HIV and investigates how stigma and anti-Black racism makes African American communities more vulnerable to this disease. It also draws upon the expertise of doctors, researchers, faith leaders, outreach workers, and activists to explore solutions to addressing the HIV epidemic.

This project was borne out of a realization that African Americans are affected by HIV and many other
diseases because of a larger, underlying societal pathology of injustice. It is informed by the research of Dr. Jelani Kerr, an Associate Professor of Health Promotion and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Louisville. His research explores the how of social factors such as mass incarceration, stigma, and neighborhood disenfranchisement affect HIV vulnerability for African American communities. This project translates the findings from some of this research into a documentary that is meant to raise awareness of HIV in the community.

Executive Producers: Jelani Kerr and Miguel Hampton
Filmed by: F5 Enterprises, LLC and Photography By Miguel Hampton.

‘THE MOVE FORWARD’: Panel to address race and equity issues in Southern Indiana

OUTHERN INDIANA — A Southern Indiana businessman and activist is partnering with community agencies to create a space to have open, honest conversations about race, inclusion, diversity and equity — and how they contribute to both the history and future of the area.

‘The Move Forward,’ hosted by Miguel Hampton, owner of F5 Enterprises, LLC, is a two-day virtual panel June 17 and 18 that will include elected officials, members of the faith and health communities, activists and others. It is meant to engage in meaningful dialogue on issues such as systemic racism and how to decrease disparities.

It’s made possible in part through partnership with Metro United Way, One Southern Indiana, Community Action of Southern Indiana, Community Foundation of Southern Indiana, Duke Energy Foundation and others.

 

Although not new to him — both Hampton and his wife, Teah, have been involved in fostering similar discussions locally and regionally, and Hampton has digitally through creative outlets ‘Common Conversations,’ — this iteration comes after a unique year in American history.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought to light many of the health disparities that were already faced by Black Americans. The deaths of Breonna Taylor in March and George Floyd in May at the hands of police brought millions to the streets in protest for social justice.

Last winter, Hampton was part of a COVID-19 recovery committee, which led to extensive discussion of “this thing we call racism and how it plagues us,” he said. “…Racism has been a pandemic in this country forever.”

He was encouraged by others on the committee to hold some type of event to bring forth more conversation.

“I called a couple people and said ‘hey would you be willing to have these conversations on camera, the conversations that we have behind closed doors — before we go out and protest, before we ask a politician — about this thing called race?’” he said. “’[An] unscripted, natural occurrence, and let’s talk about the things that are specific to this region.’”

 

For instance, he said that in Jeffersonville, downtown was a more predominantly Black neighborhood before the nearby Claysburg neighborhood was. “If you know about Claysburg, Claysburg was built on a landfill,” he said. “So why is it that Black people get an opportunity to buy a house in Claysburg but it’s in a garbage dump where the white people get to build and buy houses in the more prosperous land?”

He said the deaths of Floyd, Taylor and others are not isolated incidents that led to widespread protests against the lack of justice. “The reality of it is that Breonna Taylor’s death in Louisville brought it to the tipping point,” Hampton said. “It has already been happening and been happening for ages.”

And for those who may believe ‘that doesn’t happen here,’ Hampton said it may not be the same as Louisville but it exists nonetheless.

“We do have economic disparities in Southern Indiana and Indiana as a whole,” he said. “We do have housing disparities. We do have policing and incarceration disparities. We do have disparities in how contracts are given out.

“We still have this thing called systemic racism, we still have conscious and unconscious bias that exists in this community. So when you learn these things both in experience and you learn these things though history and knowledge, there’s a conversation that has to be had. Let’s introduce you to the conversation.”

As with all of the discussions he hosts, there are ground rules. Everyone is welcome, but mutual respect is expected, regardless of differences in opinion.

“You share your views, I share mine, but here’s the thing,” he said. “We’re not going to attack each other physically, we’re not going to put each other down, we’re going to keep it positive. We don’t have to agree but the deal is we’re going to have a conversation about how we exist in the same place and we don’t have to hurt each other.

“And that’s inclusion. Inclusion is making sure everybody is ‘a part of.’ Equity is making sure that everything is fair and the opportunities are equal and that the wealth is shared.”
