Father's Day Concert
    From the late 1920's into the mid-'50's the June Festival concerts featured African American performers who had traditionally been excluded by Jim Crow from Music Hall and other mainstream stages.
    The Father's Day concert is our revival of that tradition. It's a Sunday afternoon in Drake Park packed with inspriational music and dance.
