Join Step Afrika! Juneteenth Virtual Celebration

A D.C dance company, Step Afrika!, is engaging the Juneteenth holiday as an opportunity to fortify relationships in local communities, in honor of freedom, justice, and equality. Step Afrika! commemorates Juneteenth (June 19, 1865) and the true end of slavery with a new virtual program, “Step Afrika! Juneteenth Celebration” on Friday, June 19th at 8 pm/et. This event will be streamed on Facebook and youtube.

Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of slaves in the United States. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, but this year it is finally receiving more attention nationwide with a backdrop of a racial justice movement never seen before.

As one of the most celebrated African American dance companies in the world, Step Afrika! engages the Juneteenth holiday as an opportunity to fortify its relationships in the communities it serves and to highlight Step Afrika!’s mission to preserve and promote the tradition of stepping. Each of the featured performances, filmed at meaningful landmarks around Washington, DC, honors the rhythm, spirituality, and resistance of the African American community through dance and song.
