Juneteenth Stories of Survival and Laughter!

June 15, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Come and celebrate the jubilation of Juneteenth with a little history. Hear how folktale characters such as Anansi, the god of stories, wisdom, knowledge and trickery, Brer Rabbit, who can outsmart Brer Fox and Brer Bear, and the tragic story about the Sun and Moon, gave African American ancestors the strength to survive enslavement. Master Storyteller Donna Washington will take you on a journey into tales that lift the spirit and calls us to care for each other, honor our inner strength, and keep working to achieve our dreams!
Ms. Washington is an internationally known, multiple award-winning storyteller, spoken word recording artist, and author.
This event is open to the public and FREE to attend. https://www.tryonpalace.org/events/juneteenth-stories-of-survival-and-laughter
