The Juneteenth: Emancipation Virtual Tour is an uplifting and engaging way to discover America’s untold stories.

First, your team will learn about Emancipation Day and stories of leaders like Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass and allies like John Brown. Plus, play trivia associated. And your team will have a blast traveling across the country with our Carmen San Diego inspired Emancipation investigator.

Your team will discover why barbecue has always been a celebration food. Historically, African Americans celebrated Emancipation Day and Juneteenth with red foods, including the modern “Juneteenth food trinity” of barbecue, watermelon, and red drinks. During the event, the guides specifically address how these historic celebration foods were warped into negative stereotypes. We are proud to feature incredible Black-owned small businesses in the Juneteenth Treat Boxes, who reclaim these red foods and drinks to honor and celebrate Emancipation and their ancestors.

Further, this experience includes one live-streaming visit with a live tour. Specifically, your team will be inspired by visits to Hampton, Virginia, where they will see Fort Monroe, the location where the first enslaved Africans landed in 1619 and where the first reading of the Emancipation Proclamation was read in the South.

Freedom Day has been celebrated for centuries and your team is invited to the party. This is NOT a lecture. Instead, this celebratory and thoughtful interactive experience honors the history and traditions of the national holiday.
