Juneteenth Weekend at MOHAI, 1619: Resistance / Resilience / Remembrance

June 19, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Celebrate Juneteenth with a special storytelling-hour featuring Mr. Delbert Richardson. During this hour, Mr. Richardson will highlight the resistance of his ancestors during the periods of American chattel slavery and Jim Crow, as well as focus on the resilience of Black brilliance. This online program draws from sections of the national award-winning American History Traveling Museum: The Unspoken Truths, which will be on display at MOHAI from June 18 through June 21, 2021.

Special performance of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” by Jaydon T Beleford.

Co-presented by MOHAI and the Black Heritage Society of Washington State. Generous program support provided by Amazon.
