As today is the official day of Juneteenth. The events for the 7 Days Of Juneteenth Freedom Festival culminates tonight with a huge firework display at the Lake Charles Civic Center and the crew from SWLA Center For Health Services are to be commended for the great job that they have done.

Last night was one of the events that they partnered with Matt Young The Director of Cultural Affairs with the City Of Lake Charles. The event was Broken Time Sculpture by Martin Payton and the event was everything and more.

I had the pleasure of being the host and moderator for the evenings event and have a one on one discussion with Martin Payton who is a native of New Orleans and has been an instructor for colleges in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Florida. We talked about his desire as an artist and things that he has created for the masses. You should check him out and find out more about his works and get behind the creative minds of this man.

He also brought some of the pieces last night of things that he created and I had to make a round and get pictures for you to see
