To help you celebrate Juneteenth this year, World Cafe has put together a playlist featuring classic tracks from Black musicians like The Temptations, Mavis Staples, Jimi Hendrix and more.

The mix also includes new music we've been loving, like Janelle Monáe's just-released The Age of Pleasure, as well as new songs from Arlo Parks and Devon Gilfillian.

We hope this selection of music inspires joy and triumph as we recognize Juneteenth, which commemorates the fall of slavery in the U.S. — and more specifically, the day the news reached Galveston, Texas, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued in 1863.
