ASALH W. Marvin Dulaney Branch D/FW Juneteenth Celebration at the African American Musuem (Dallas) and the National Archives Records Administration (NARA) in DC
June 17 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
In commemoration of Juneteenth, celebrating the liberation of enslaved people in the Confederate states, and in conjunction with the display of the original Emancipation Proclamation signed by President Abraham Lincoln, and General Order #3 (which transmitted the news of emancipation to the residents of the state of Texas), we join with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) for a discussion with a musical performance. Moderated by Dr. Elizabeth Clark-Lewis, professor of history at Howard University, the program will include Dr. Anton House, Delaware State University, and Don and Jocelyn Pinkard, members of the ASALH Dallas Branch. Violinist Gabrielle Clover will perform. Don and Joycelyn Pinkard also offered a three hours guided tour visiting twenty historic sites that trace the path of the African American journey on the Hidden History Tours.
