On Juneteenth

June 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0

Free

In On Juneteenth, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Annette Gordon-Reed tells the sweeping story of Juneteenth’s integral importance to American history and provides a historian’s view of the country’s long road to Juneteenth, recounting both its origins in Texas and the enormous hardships that African-Americans have endured in the century since, from Reconstruction through Jim Crow and beyond. Joining Annette Gordon-Reed in conversation will be Roy Young, CEO of James Madison’s Montpelier, and a board member of the Orange County, Virginia African-American Historical Society (to be announced).

This program is presented in partnership with James Madison’s Montpelier.

The National Archives’ celebration of the Emancipation Proclamation is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of The Boeing Company.
