In celebration of Juneteenth and the viewing of the Emancipation Proclamation and General Order No. 3, join us for an interactive performance featuring Playback Theater/Verbal Gymnastics, a cast of professional actors, musicians, and storytellers who will entertain and engage the audience with innovative theater and storytelling. Come share stories of what Juneteenth means to you. Have your story played back with a group of amazing actors and musicians.

From June 18 to 20, 2024, the National Archives Museum will display the original Emancipation Proclamation and General Order No. 3, a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States that all slaves are free.
