Experience the impactful presentation "Remembering Juneteenth" at The Alamo, an educational performance lasting 25 minutes that delves into the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. This powerful work brings to life the stories of formerly enslaved people from Texas and will be brought to the stage by Dr. Jolie Rocke and Mr. Manning Mpinduzi-Mott. Join us for this live performance on June 16th at 10:30 a.m. in Alamo Hall.

"Remembering Juneteenth" offers a unique perspective on the journey toward freedom by sharing first-person accounts of the emancipated in their own words. The language used in the performance is from the early 1900s, immersing audiences in the antebellum period and providing a glimpse into the lives of those who fought for their freedom. Dr. Jolie Rocke, a Texas Commission on the Arts Texas Touring Roster Artist, brings her wonderful expertise to the performance.
