Legacy Foundation Japan will be hosting its third Annual Gala, a night that celebrates Juneteenth and the African American journey throughout History. Celebrating June 19th serves to commemorate the contributions and rich traditions of African Americans to America, Japan and the world. Despite the adversity and oppression faced, with love, support, courage and determination the community continues to stand strong and persevere. Therefore for Juneteenth, this momentous moment in time, here in Japan we will tell the story, remember the struggle and celebrate the achievements of Black people.

レガシー・ファウンデーション・ジャパンは、2024年6月14日とアフリカ系アメリカ人の歴史的な歩みを祝し、第三回目のガラ(祝賀会)を開催します。年に一度、6月19日を祝うことは、アメリカ、日本、そして世界に対するアフリカ系アメリカ人の貢献と豊かな伝統を記念することにつながります。逆境や抑圧に直面しながらも、愛とお互いへの支援、勇気と決意を持って、彼らのコミュニティーは確固とした態度で、屈することなく存続してきています。そこで、ジューンティーンスという記念すべき日に、ここ日本で、私たちはその物語を語り、闘争を思い出し、黒人の功績を称えたいと思います。

Seeds of Hope

GIANNI is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York whose work spans the realms of fashion, fine art, and music. Gianni’s work is heavily influenced by expressing the African America experience and Afrofuturism. Despite being a life-long artist, his ethos was ignited after being wrongfully arrested in 2017, driving him to use his art as a vehicle of empathy and understanding.

Peyton is a Los Angeles-born painter whose work delves into the depths of self- examination and human experience. With a keen eye for blending realism, abstraction, and expressionism, Peyton infuses her portraits with intentionality, often incorporating unique materials like hand-sourced 24k gold foil from Venice, Italy.
