To commemorate Juneteenth this year, Bandcamp will contribute its royalties to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund once more.
Bandcamp will give all of its earnings to the NAACP on Friday, June 18th, from midnight to midnight PST. Each year on June 19th, Juneteenth marks the abolition of slavery in the United States. Following last year’s edition, this is the second time Bandcamp has conducted a Juneteenth sale.
Black Bandcamp, a platform established to showcase Black musicians on the music streaming service, changed its name to Black Artist Database the previous month, but it is still a great place to find and support Black music.
This day should motivate us to reflect on our current situation and consider what we can do to make the world a somewhat more fair place. Each modest individual activity adds up to huge communal triumphs that improve everyone’s quality of life. In addition to commemorating past triumphs, we must identify present issues and begin to address them to build a better society.
