Community Partners and REIB Staff welcome Dr. Robert Livingston


The Black Experience 2024

The Black Experience 2024 (BX24) is a free holistic celebration of Vermont’s Black lived experience, and a staple of Burlington’s observation of Black History Month. This year's edition features a headlining performance from Talib Kweli, one of hip-hop's most accomplished artists, as well as special presentations by Grammy-nominated vocal ensemble Sweet Honey in the Rock and keynote speaker Dr. Robert Livingston, an author, social psychologist, and leading expert on the science underlying bias and racism.







REIB is proud to sponsor, organize and host our annual Juneteenth event which brings the community together and welcomes both national and local artists and vendors to continue to build on Burlington’s legacy of commemorating Juneteenth and uplifting and celebrating the Black community.
