Juneteenth: A Celebration of African Culture, Music, and Cuisine
Saturday, June 17, 2017
Terry James, Board Member of the Slave Dwelling Project, will spend another night on Huguenot Street as he did in September 2016. James has slept in over 40 slave dwellings in shackles to commemorate the enslaved ancestors who survived the Middle Passage, bringing awareness to historic slave dwellings' existence, history, and need for preservation.
Dynamic musician and storyteller Kim Harris will perform songs of joy, hope, and freedom, combining a strong folk and gospel legacy with classical, rock, and pop influences.
More details to come.
