The Metaverse Celebrates Juneteenth

On today’s episode of NFT Radio, we are celebrating Juneteenth, an important day for the physical world and Metaverse alike. Our digital world is still in its infancy, and as we build and create, we must make sure it’s inclusive, diverse, and empowering to all. For many that feel disempowered in the physical world, the Metaverse is a place where individuals from any background can thrive without being judged. Thus, celebrating Juneteenth in the Metaverse is imperative to continue striving towards empowerment and equity.

Specifically, we will be talking to POC creatives about what Juneteenth and the Metaverse means to them, including highlighting their recent creative projects. These include Digital Diaspora, an art exhibition celebrating Black liberation and creativity, and Juneteenth Holograms, NFTs representing iconic dance trends immortalized as holograms.

Presenting “The Metaverse Celebrates Juneteenth” Thursday, June 17th at 8:00pm CST.
