A Juneteenth Pageant - The Play

Monday, June 19, 2023

**Due to severe weather, "A Juneteenth Pageant - The Play," is postponed until Monday, June 19, 6 pm. We regret any inconvenience, and look forward to seeing you then!** 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 music, poetry, laughter and tears. A Juneteenth Pageant-THE PLAY is like no pageant that you’ve ever seen before. Written and directed by Hampton playwright, Marie St. Clair, this moving, often humorous and memorable experience will illuminate the origins and meaning of Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. You will laugh, you may cry, but you will leave enlightened to the true meaning of Juneteenth, also known as "Freedom Day!" Presented by the Hampton History Museum and sponsored by The Fort Monroe Authority.
