Juneteenth 2020 – Music to Celebrate Our Ancestors

Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire
222 Court Street
Portsmouth, NH 03801

With a focus on the history of Soul Food and Soul Music, this year’s Juneteenth Celebration offers a series of engaging, informative, and entertaining programs that examine the connection between food and historical events in the Black community.

Music: It feeds the soul, fuels the body, inspires artists, influences politics, and impacts just about every part of our lives.

For this commemorative event, live streaming from the Portsmouth African Burying Ground, members of the African drumming and dance group Akwaaba Ensemble and Rev. Robert Thompson will honor the ancestors who survived the Middle Passage with traditional songs and dance.
