Join in on a week-long celebration – from hosting a watch party to getting access to exclusives and more – as we premiere the film Buffalo Soldiers: Fighting on Two Fronts this Juneteenth!
How are you celebrating Juneteenth? This year, at WORLD, we’re ushering in the premiere of Buffalo Soldiers: Fighting on Two Fronts! On June 12, the new film by director Dru Holley, a PBS Open Call for Emerging Filmmakers recipient, airs on PBS and WORLD, just in time for you to host a viewing party alongside your Juneteenth festivities.
Capturing the profound and often contradictory roles played by Black soldiers in the U.S. military, Buffalo Soldiers explores how the iconic Buffalo Soldiers fought on two very different sets of the front lines – military conflicts abroad and civil rights struggles at home – that resulted in a complicated legacy encapsulated by a multitude of diverse perspectives.
Use this watch party kit to guide you, and your friends and family, through a week-long celebration of Black stories culminating on Juneteenth.
