“A Juneteenth Pageant – The Play” Presented by the Hampton History Museum

June 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The Hampton History Museum presents “A Juneteenth Pageant – The Play” at the Event Center 227 E. Mercury Blvd, in Hampton, on June 19 at 6:30 p.m.

The Hampton Juneteenth Pageant is more than glitz, glam and Juneteenth history, the contestants will not only display their outer beauty but will also reveal their internal struggles with a mixture of song, laughter and tears.

Written and directed by Hampton playwright, Marie St. Clair, this moving, often humorous and most memorable experience illuminates the origins and meaning of Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Attendees will laugh, may cry, and will leave enlightened to the true meaning of Juneteenth, also known as “Freedom Day.”
