Alexandria Black History Museum partners with a cappella group for Juneteenth Celebration

The Alexandria Black History Museum is partnering with Washington Revels Jubilee Voices — a group that preserves local Black traditions through a cappella music, dramatic performances and dance — for a virtual Juneteenth Celebration this weekend.

Juneteenth is a holiday that marks date that slavery was fully abolished in the United States. A virtual program called “Our People: A Juneteenth Story” will premiere on Saturday, June 19, and will include footage of Washington Revels Jubilee Voices at historically significant sites throughout Alexandria presented by the Black History Museum.

“This special production was filmed on location at heritage sites throughout historic Alexandria, Virginia, with a virtual release presented by the Museum on Juneteenth,” Washington Revels Jubilee Voices said on its website.

Attendees can sign up to watch the presentation live, and the presentation will be available at the Office of Historic Alexandria’s YouTube page after the premiere.
