The Dublin Black Festival Committee and Dublin-Laurens Arts Council presents Taa Linglaa, performed by Uhuru Dancers on Saturday, June 25 at 5 p.m. at Theatre Dublin as part of the annual Juneteenth Celebration in Dublin, Ga.

The Uhuru Dancers, Inc. is a nonprofit dance organization with a goal to develop and educate the community through African dance, drum, and song. Uhuru means freedom in Kiswahili. Uhuru has been empowering the Atlanta area through African culture since 1989. The company was established with the purpose to uphold a strong legacy of African culture through dance, rhythm, song, and folklore. 

The historic moment came on June 19, 1865, when General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas to issue General Order No. 3 officially freeing America's final slaves. This date, known as Juneteenth, has since been celebrated as Black Independence Day by African Americans across the nation.
