This Juneteenth, The Emancipator proudly presents the Boston stop of Historically Black Phrases Live!, a national touring game show experience based on the NAACP Image Award-winning book, “Historically Black Phrases: From ‘I Ain’t One Of Your Lil’ Friends’ to ‘Who All Gon’ Be There?’.” Hosted by co-authors jarrett hill and Tre’vell Anderson, HBP Live! is the game show you didn't know you needed! The show features three notable contestants from the Boston area competing in three rounds of gameplay rooted in trivia about Black culture. The highest-scoring contestant advances to a final round in which they're tested on all things Boo Boo The Fool — and other Historically Black Phrases! Audience members get a chance to play for prizes, too! This special Juneteenth event is presented by Boston’s own The Emancipator, a digital magazine featuring original perspectives from leading scholars, journalists and community members engaged in exploring solutions to racial inequality and its intersections. Join us at CitySpace for a night of uproarious fun, all while celebrating and uplifting the cultural contributions of the Black community. Copies of “Historically Black Phrases” and other books from hill and Anderson will be available for purchase and the authors will sign after the show. There will also be event merch for sale and guests will enjoy a complimentary post-show reception.
