Tips from the community

Located across the Potomac River from D.C, Alexandria, Virginia, offers many ways to celebrate African American culture this Juneteenth. Carlyle House Historic Park, an 18th-century museum in the Old Town, will host poetry readings coupled with live music and art on the holiday. On June 18th, head to the Black History Museum’s garden for children’s storytelling about local history through books, stories, and songs.  Booking a spot on a Manumission Tour is a must-do. Their routes tell the history of enslaved Alexandrians, their stories of freedom, and tours of the historically Black Duke Street. Don’t forget to eat your way through Black-owned Alexandria at local spots like Haute Dogs and Fries or Hen Quarter.
