Greg Ellis is preparing for the official television premiere of his original work "Juneteenth the Play" airing today on ABC Network.

"Juneteenth the Play" is scheduled to air today on June 19, 2021, at 7:00 pm Central on ABC Television Channel 8.2.
This year's television premiere of the production follows the 2020 successful streaming event of "Juneteenth the Play".

"Juneteenth is truly a significant day to celebrate in our nation--the day that Texas freed its slaves signifying the end of slavery in America. Last year in the year of 2020, Juneteenth was recognized as a state holiday in 47 states in our country. Today is an amazing day to witness Juneteenth now being recognized as a national holiday. I am proud to be a part of the storytelling process to share this powerful story through 'Juneteenth the Play'. It is my hope that we continue to tell this story so that the legacy of Juneteenth is understood as part of our national roadmap to the road to freedom", says Greg Ellis, Playwright/Producer/
